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, " is the first Sunday after the first full moon on or after the spring equinox."

Yeah, that helps, right.

Your post made me curious so checked out Wikipedia to see the reasons for the date thing...if you want to get more confused check that out.

I thought Easter happened when the easter bunny came. I have been lied to!!
