Ever wonder why Easter is on a different day each year?  Me too!

The date of Easter Sunday changes every year because it’s celebrated on the first Sunday after the Paschal Full Moon. This varies each year so Easter Sunday can be any time from March 22nd to April 25th. Still confused?  Me, too!  And guess what?  Wikipedia can confuse you more if you really want to know the Easter details.

If you know of any more awesome Easter crafts, please share them in the comments section because I love new ideas!

    • Yes, sorry about that. She is having temporary host issues and the link will probably be working tomorrow.

  2. Hi Scarlet,
    Thank you for featuring the origami rabbit basket, one of my favorite origami figures.
    It is a delight to make and to give away for Easter!

  3. I went to wikipedia and you’re right, they make it confusing! Here’s the truth on Easter in a simplified way… Jesus was born into this world, lived a perfect life while serving those in need, especially the lowliest. But those who hated Him nailed Him to a cross and crucified Him. And although it sounds like Jesus “lost”, it was all part of the plan. God’s plan. It’s a love story. He stayed on that cross to bear the sin of the world, our sin. He died for us. But even more amazing than that, to show His power over death, He ROSE from the grave 3 days later. Jesus won! Now there’s hope, salvation and eternal life with Him! ANYONE willing to accept, that is.

  4. I’m extremely impressed with your writing skills as well as with the layout on your blog. Is this a paid theme or did you modify it yourself? Either way keep up the nice quality writing, it is rare to see a great blog like this one nowadays.

  5. Good day! Do you know if they make any plugins to assist
    with SEO? I’m trying to get my blog to rank for some targeted keywords but I’m not seeing very good results.
    If you know of any please share. Thank you!
