The date of easter

In Mark Galli's book Beyond Smells and Bells he tells how the date for Easter Sunday is derived. I have known this, but it seems whenever people ask me about it I can't think of it. On p. 24 he says, "...it is the first Sunday after the first full moon on or after the spring equinox."

Yeah, that helps, right.
