EASTER AND THE MOON
When we celebrate Christmas, it’s always on December 25. But although Easter is always in spring and always on Sunday, it can come at very different times during the spring season. Have you ever wondered why some years we celebrate Easter at the beginning of April, other times in the middle of April, and sometimes at the end of March?
It is all because of the moon.
The moon determines the date for Easter because Easter always falls on the Sunday following the first full moon after the advent of spring, which comes on March 20.
Since there is a rabbit on the moon, and story tellers in the East were aware of it, do you think the bunny on the moon might have some relationship to the concept of the Easter bunny? Or is it just a coincidence?
