I tried to rate this 5 stars, but had some issues with my computer.
I found this article very helpful in answering nonbelier's questions about the date of Easter. They knew I was a Christian and naturally thought I would know, but that information is not widely taught.
Although I don't understand a lot of the writing, I got enough to be able to explain it, and I thankyou. It was also very easy to locate when I googled.

Huh? That was an EXTREMELY over complicated way to say that is Easter occurs the Sunday after the first full moon in spring. Seems like The Wire had a pretty accurate portrayal of the Baltimore Sun!

Wow, that was pretty intense. I still feel like I don't know why Easter was early. I used to think I was pretty smart, until I couldn't understand an article in the Baltimore sun. Next time I google "why was Easter early", I'll be sure to add the words "keep it simple".

It's definitely more helpful than most I've read on the subject!
