This is the first year since 1913 that he'll be showing up so early and contending with the wintry weather conditions.
Easter in the Western world is generally celebrated in April, but there are the unusual years, like this one, when it occurs in March.
Easter is a movable feast tied to the cycles of the moon. It is celebrated on the first Sunday after the first full paschal moon, which appeared Thursday.
No one alive today will be around to see that happen again. The next time Easter Sunday will come so early in March will be 2228.
The last time it fell on a March 23 was 95 years ago.
Happy Birthday also, to a vip, well to me anyway!! Who just happens to be sharing a birthday with easter this year.
