Really Confused. Help Needed.

I don’t feel like researching this myself. Jennifer – can you answer?

Why was Easter THIS weekend and Passover isn’t until sometime in April?? Aren’t the two events really interconnected?  Have I somehow become delusional regarding Church History and have begun mixing things up to suit myself? (This is a possibility folks as many things I used to have hammered out in my little pea brain have become jumbled up since being kicked out of Theology 101 upon defecting from those whom we no longer speak of….) THANK GOD FOR THAT!! (Being kicked out, defecting and getting all my smarts mixed up! It’s much more fun this way!!)

People may wonder why I link back to The Village. Well. You’d have to have experienced IT and then watched the movie to understand. But those who know, know what I’m talking about! And those whom I no longer speak of know what I’m talking about too!

(The italicized part is a quote from the movie.)

  1. The day we celebrate as Easter is not based on religious days, unfortunately. It has something to do with the alignment of the stars and some sort of equinox thing. Wikipedia probably will tell you. Hubby & I were discussing the same thing. This is probably why certain Christians do not celebrate Easter. I’m assuming they celebrate Christ’s resurrection, but not Easter in the form of a national holiday.
    By they way, I love that you refer to The Village when you talk about certain things. I love that movie.

  2. HAHAHA about The Village part. You deserve a lot of credit because other friends I had no longer are my friends b/c they couldn’t handle me during the “deprogramming” phase of life. You, somehow, have survived that part of our friendship.

    That’s why I love you Oh. SO. Much.

  3. I know what it’s like to be de-assimilated. Maybe you could refer to them as the Borg and you are like Seven of Nine. I know, now I look like a totally Star Trek geek, but I think the comparison applies in this situation. Besides, Seven was pretty hot.

  4. Hi Sarah!

    Natasha called me on Easter Sunday and said, “Happy Easter even though Passover hasn’t happened yet!” And then she wanted to know how Jesus could rise from the dead when He wasn’t even dead yet!

    I think it has to do with two different calendars. The Jews have their own calendar based upon the Scriptures. Imagine that. All the Jewish feasts fall according to the Biblical reckoning.

    We are under the Julian calendar, which is based upon astronomy. The Jewish calendar has to add an extra month every so often to keep the seasons in line with the months, so every so often, it really messes with the Easter/Passover dates, like it did this year.

    But in all actuality, it is very rare that Passover and Easter ever align in the right days anyway, even if they get the order correct.

    I’m glad God doesn’t care about days anymore!
