I learned the reasons yesterday while reading my MOPS newsletter!
- Easter is always the first Sunday after the first full moon following the Spring Equinox (March 20)
- This dating of Easter is based on the lunar calendar that Hebrew people used to identify Passover, which is why it moves around on our calendar
- This year is the earliest Easter any of us will ever see for the rest of our lives. The next time Easter will be on this date is 2228!
- There are 35 possible dates for Easter, ranging from March 22 to April 25
Well, I learn something new every day!
