Happy Easter

Have you ever wondered how the date is chosen every year for Easter?  I used to be so clueless.  I always wondered why it would sometimes be in March and other times in April.  Even late April a few times.  I was determined to find out the "rule", therefore I did some digging about a year ago.  Some of you may already know the rule, but for those of you who are completely clueless like I was, here it goes!

Easter is always the very first Sunday on or after the very first full moon in Spring.  If you notice, the first full moon in spring was the day before Easter this year.  

I hope this helped for anyone who was wondering. 

Happy Easter!
