did you know?

it must be the teacher in me...but I had to share:

Ever wondered why Easter’s date wanders around? Because it’s determined by the lunar calendar. Easter is celebrated at the first Sunday after the first full Moon, after the Spring Equinox. It can therefore arrive anywhere between March 21st and April 25th.

there you go.

I was wondering why it was so early. This year passover was VERY early so I noticed that easter was early too. Jewish calendar is lunar too.
