Well, THE Fiscal Thing to Do in April

Your Taxes! Every year, the exact middle of the month is the most stressful day of the year for a large majority of the US population because that is when taxes are due.

Due to the vagaries of the Jewish calendar, not all of Passover is always in April, but I cannot remember when NONE of it was in April, so I am including it here.

It was a bright cold day in April and the clocks were striking thirteen.
