I know, right? I was a little shocked when I realized it was in March as well.
What's up with that?!

Christian churches that follow the Gregorian calendar, such as many Western Christian churches, celebrate Easter on the first Sunday after the paschal full Moon on or just after the vernal equinox. For simplicity, the equinox is considered March 21. The paschal full Moon always falls on the 14th day of a lunar month; because ancient calculations did not take into account certain lunar motions, this date may be slightly off from the astronomical full Moon date.

When is Easter Sunday 2013, 2014, 2015

Texasgal all Jewish Holy Days follow the lunar calendar so they are not the same day or even the same month every year. In fact some years the Jewish calendar has 13 months. Shalom

These new calendars being used today are quite confusing for those of us used to the traditional method.
The Jewish calendar has about 3,500 years on the one commonly used. LOL At least we can tell what date things actually happened. You newbies kill me. LOL Shalom

Since they were probably written in stone originally, I would hate to be the one that had to carry them around
