Why Do We Celebrate Easter?
The Easter holiday is nearly upon us and so too, nearly spring! What a great time to sew some bright spring colors. I've put together a new list of Fun & Easy Easter Sewing Projects that I think you might like.
Why Does the Date Seem to Change Every Year?
This year, Easter Sunday will fall on April 1. The holiday is one of the most important in the Christian religion and celebrates the resurrection of Jesus on the third day after his crucifixion on Good Friday by the Romans at Calvary around 30AD.
According to Christian religious tradition, the Easter holiday must always fall on the next full moon after the Spring Equinox.
Easter can fall as early as March and as late as April or even May in some years. The date of Easter changes because the full moon can fall on different days in different time zones.
