Passover for the year 2006 starts on Thursday, April 13th and ends the 7 day holiday on Wednesday, April 19th. Because the Jewish calendar is a lunar calendar, the holiday begins on the sunset of the previous day on the evening of Wednesday, April 12th. For Reform and Reconstructionist Jews who follow the Biblical text they celebrate the holiday over 7 days, however, Orthodox, Hasidic, and other Jews in the Diaspora will celebrate the holiday as 8 days ending on Thursday, April 20th.

Thursday, April 13th is the 102 day of the 2006 calendar year with -12 years, -9 months, -3 days until the start of the celebration of Passover 2006.
