Spring into Easter

Happy first day of spring -- I knew you could make it without leaving town. Now go hunt up your Easter outfits:

Easter always comes on the Sunday after the first, or Paschal, full moon following the first day of spring.

Spring arrives on Thursday and the moon will be full on Friday, the earliest Paschal moon since 1913. And that means Easter, the Christian holiday marking the resurrection of Jesus Christ, is this Sunday. It won't come this early again for another 220 or so years.

That's darn near as complicated as the Democratic presidential  nomination process.
