Easter


Ever wonder why Easter Sunday falls anywhere between March and April? Last year, Easter was on March 27th, this year, April 16th.

It's the first Sunday after the first full moon after the spring equinox.

Didja get that? So the spring equinox was March 21st. The first full moon since then was this past Thursday, April 13th so Easter is this Sunday.

I just learned this bit of trivia this year.

Does anyone else find it interesting that 'they' (whoever 'they' are) base when to celebrate Easter on astrology?

Things that make you go hummmmm...

I'm so glad it was later this year. It was warm and sunny with a breeze blowing! A perfect weather day for Easter!

Last year we just about froze!
