The dating of Easter is something of a complicated and confusing thing; (depending on whether one uses the Gregorian calendar or the Julian calendar, and how conversant one is with the timing of the Paschal Full Moon, the first Sunday after which is officially Easter, assuming that it coincides somewhat with the first Ecclesiastical Full Moon after March 20, which happened to be the vernal equinox in AD 325, the year the Council of Nicea addressed the issue.) Sort of takes all the fun out of it, huh?One may find it more advantageous simply to consult one’s Day-Timer. Someone has already done the calculations and highlighted the pertinent dates, beginning with Mardi Gras (especially important in Louisiana, because Fat Tuesday is the occasion of a school holiday there), Ash Wednesday and the subsequent Lenten season, right on up to Easter.It’s Easter, again: stores gear up with greeting cards and wicker baskets filled with that green, plastic “grass” (which, when inevitably disbursed by the wind, is the only green to be found in an otherwise brown landscape.) Children are astir with visions of wildly colored eggs and of a large pink (or yellow) bunny dancing in their heads.It’s Easter, again: for lots of folks that means dinner with the family, working in the yard, and reveling in the sights, sounds and smells of spring.
