Easter 2018
Ronda Rich
Over a decade ago, we were happily looking forward to Easter and the warmth it would bring after a challenging winter of bitter cold. Boy, did we get a surprise. Next to the ravaging remains of a recent hurricane that left the Rondarosa damaged – the first hurricane in the history of the Atlanta area – it was the biggest surprise we’d ever experienced from nature. As you may know, the date of Easter is set by a particular full moon. Easter is always on the Sunday following the first full moon that rises after the first day of spring (March 21, the day after spring begins). If the March full moon fell on the 19th then Easter would have to wait until the Sunday after the full moon in April. For this reason, Easter can be as early as the last Sunday in March or as late as the last Sunday in April.
