Thoughts on Christianity and other random parts of my life. I wrote a journal for years before I started blogging and this blog is a natural extension of my journey.

My birthday is March 23; March 23, 2008 is Easter
My birthday is March 23. Because Easter is calculated by a lunar calendar, it is on a day each year. The year I was born in 1963, Easter was on April 14th. The most recent time in history besides 2008 that Easter fell on March 23 was 1913.
"Easter is the Sunday after the Paschal Full Moon. The Paschal Full Moon may occur from March 21 through April 18, inclusive. Thus the date of Easter is from March 22 through April 25, inclusive. The date of the Paschal full moon is determined from tables, and it may differ from the date of the the actual full moon by up to two days."
