Easter Excitement

Are you celebrating Easter? If so, Easter falls on April 20th this year.

Easter has a different date every year, but it is always the first American holiday to fall after the vernal equinox, or official first day of spring.  According to History.com, Easter always falls on the first Sunday after the vernal equinox’s first full moon occurs.  Easter has always been a religious holiday whether it was pagan or Christian, but nowadays it is more of a fun holiday for the masses to enjoy.
