What Day is it?

I am a bit confused, or at least overwhelmed.  Today is Easter, one of the most important holidays in the Christian faith - a day of renewal, hope, and faith.   The related Jewish holiday we are in the midst of is Passover, commemorating liberty from slavery and oppression.

Today was also a beautiful spring day.  I got some incredible skiing in yesterday at Sugarloaf, my favorite mountain.  (I did lose a battle to an epic mogul run, and my back is feeling it today!).

Tomorrow is April Fool's Day.  I think I am glad I am leaving my house at 5 a.m. for a flight to Minneapolis, and will miss the jokesters in my house and in the office.

And today, March 31st, marks the end of the fiscal year for Hussey Seating, and tomorrow, the 1st day of April, begins our new year.  

Easter, Passover, April Fool's, Fiscal Year ending and starting - do you sense why my mind is on overload?

Some may ask why we end our fiscal year at the end of March.  Not many people can guess the answer.  The history is that when we were in the structural steel business, much of the steel inventory was stored outside.  And here in Maine, it wasn't usually convenient or easy to count the inventory at the end of December.  Hence, the time to count inventory was moved to the spring, to the end of March.  

I actually like this time as a beginning to our new fiscal year.  As warmth comes and flowers bloom, and the promise of Easter is upon us, it's a wonderful time to begin anew and to commit to another year for the mission of Hussey Seating - to be your preferred choice for creating fanastic seating solutions.
