For Christians the world over, the week preceding Easter, which commemorates the Passion, the death of Jesus Christ on the cross, and the Resurrection, is one of the most observed of religious holidays. Easter follows Lent, the 40 days prior to Easter, not including Sundays, which begins on Ash Wednesday and ends on Holy Saturday. On Easter Sunday, Christians flock to their respective churches in numbers far exceeding those normally seen during regular Sunday services and, according to local clergy, more mainstream churches are finding it difficult to fill with members on a regular basis.

Yes, it?s not your imagination; Easter is very early this year Why does the date for Easter change every year? Have you ever wondered why Easter Sunday can fall anywhere between March 22 and April 25? In Western Christianity, Easter is always celebrated on the Sunday immediately following the Paschal Full Moon date of the year. To make things even more complicated, the ?Paschal Full Moon? may or may not actually coincide with an actual full moon as we know it. There are in fact as many misunderstandings about the calculations as there are reasons for confusion about Easter dates.

Lent is the 40-day season leading up to Easter; a time of strict spiritual examination and renewal. It’s most famous for people “giving things up for Lent” — chocolate, caffeine, swearing, and other sinful delights — and sometimes fasting, at least from meat, on Fridays (in honor of Good Friday, when Jesus was crucified). Most churches clear out the flowers and frilly decorations during Lent, and suspend the use of “Alleluia” and other happy words of praise.

Guess what? I'm another year older today. My, these birthdays just sneak up on a person when you're not looking. I must admit, however, I always like the way I feel when it is my "special" day because it is just that - special. I share this day with my twin sister, Elaine, who lives in Santa Barbara. We were surprise May baskets for my mother and father, lo those many years ago. Nobody, not even the doctor, knew two babies would arrive that day. I came first and there was much joy on my arrival.
