To begin, I would like to wish you and yours a Happy Easter. Even if you don't celebrate the day, I believe the fundamental themes of hope, love, and sacrifice for your fellow men are universally important to all of us. There was a recent thread that sort of devolved and was abandoned, but I thought generally led to well done and mature conversation. Near the end I posted a question I was hoping someone might be able to answer for me. Like others with a Western Christian heritage, we celebrate Easter today. I was hoping someone could educate me on why we use a different calculation for the celebration instead of just celebrating the Sunday after Passover. I know the Eastern Christian heritage uses the Julian instead of Gregorian, but they don't follow the Jews either.
