Same with getting paid as a realtor. Why can't we get paid every other Fri?

Just joking.

I'd prefer a set date too.  For that and Persian New Year.  I missed PNY this year and was totally bummed!  I live a 15 minute walk from the local celebration.  Love the food (and the women) so I always try to get there or work there back in my medical days.

I'm with Richard Weeks on this one.   He got it right.   The church is doing a live version of the Easter story here this week.   It was a packed house for the first presentation on Sunday night.

We appreciate the true story and meaning of the crucifixion and the resurrection but my husband jokes that many people only like the Easter holiday because they can get their chocolate bunny fix for the year.

I'm going to say it's the Pope's fault. Read up on why Catholics eat fish before Easter. It's because the Pope's brother in xxx year was a fisherman.

I just look on my calendar every year to find out when it is. Much easier than trying to figure out when the first full spring moon is going to occur.

That would be nice, March is usually early and in a normal winter that would mean cold and melting snow, this yer spring has arrived early.
