Halocho #1051 - Start learning about Pessach

The laws of Pessach in Shulchan Aruch begin with: "One should start learning the laws of Pessach thirty days before Pessach". 

If you fill up a storage room that you don't plan on entering again until after Pessach, you don't have to first check it for Chametz. However, if it's within 30 days to Pessach, then you do have to check it at night with a candle. 

If you forgot to check it, you have to empty it, and check it that night for Chametz with a candle.
