Easter weekend is upon us. It is a late one this year which causes many folks to wonder how we decide when to have Easter. Well, here it is.
Easter is the first Sunday after the first full moon after the Spring Equinox. This allows for a very wide range (pretty much a month) of possibilities for the date due waiting for a full moon.
This year, the Equinox was March 21 and the next full moon is this Tuesday evening (April 11). That makes this weekend Easter weekend.
Remember the real meaning of Easter. It is a very important Christian celebration around the crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus Christ.
Enjoy some time with your family. Love is important, more important than anything. Showing someone that you love them will make a huge difference in any life, including yours.
Have some fun, eat well and play safe this weekend. Be nice to our visitors as we get a preview of the busy season. Have a happy Easter.
