Happy Easter!


Easter has a different date every year because it’s based on the moon phases. In 325 CE, Constantine I led a council of Christian bishops who decided that Easter must always be a Sunday to honor the resurrection of Jesus. They also said it would immediately follow, but not land on, the first full moon after the Spring Equinox, which is why the date can fall anywhere between March 22 and April 25.

  1. So... Constantine and the other bishops mooned us? Or... are they implying Christ did? Don't hate me for asking. I had no choice.

    I hope you are having, or had, a fine Easter.
