There's Always an Explanation

Has anyone else been wondering why in the sam hill Easter is this weekend? How are we suppose to dress in all our Easter finery when the temp is 31 degrees and we have a wind chill? How are we suppose to hide Easter eggs in snow drifts? How are we suppose to go to a sunrise service when we haven't seen the sun in over 4 months? Well, I have the answer:

"Easter always comes on the Sunday after the first, or Paschal, full moon following the first day of spring. Spring arrives on Thursday and the moon will be full on Friday, the earliest Paschal moon since 1913. And that means Easter, the Christian holiday marking the resurrection of Jesus Christ, is this Sunday. It won't come this early again for another 220 or so years."

Whew, that's a relief. I was beginning to think it was some type of conspiracy.
