Easter is related to Passover, which is determined by a specific phase of the moon. As the lunar calendar and our normal calendars don't follow the same cycles, Easter will fall on different days each year.

Hello All!
I have no religious ties to any one particular religious group or religion. I just like to study and read things for the sake of knowlege. Easter, as is celebrated here in the US is partialy of a pagan origin. It is mixed in with Passover so folks will accept it but for the record, Easter is of pagan origin. Even the name itself. Read these Articles:

Again, Im not looking to preach or convert anyone, thats not my thing. However, the truth is the truth.

America's education dollars or big fingers that hit the adjacent key when typing?

This time I'll be nice and go with the big fingers.
Hah, the only "jeasus" in american schools is the guy from mexico that sweeps the floor at night.

I'll assure you that my spelling and grammer is well above average, but I typically ignore maintaining my "normal" standards when yapping on internet boards as they are far too casual. It also makes it easier to laugh at the BIG typos;) I am usually the "go-to guy" for proof-reads and edititing in my circles.
