Fact of the Day: Lunar Easter

The date of Easter changes every year due to the determination being based on the old lunar calendar. Easter is always celebrated the Sunday after a full moon. If the event lands on Sunday, then it's celebrated exactly a week afterwards.

  2. Reminds me of a truly stupid statement I made a few years ago at work: "Hey, does anyone know what day of the week Easter falls on this year?"
    And here you thought that the nonsense that comes with Penwasser Place was all made up.
    HAPPY EASTER!
    It's on Sunday, right?

  10. I was wondering how they determined Easter. It came way too early this year. Now I see why!
