When is Easter?

We have put Easter in his puzzle because Easter is sometimes in April, and it is sometimes in March.

It is interesting because Easter doesn’t have a fixed date.

Easter is held on the first Sunday after the first full moon that occurs on or after the Spring Equinox. (Reference) [Want to know what the Spring Equinox is? Click here.]

So for 2021, the Spring Equinox is March 20th. The first full moon following it is on March 28th. (Reference) And the first Sunday following that full moon is on April 4th. Hence, Easter Sunday is on April 4th in 2021.

What is the birth flower for the month of April?

Just like months have “birth stones” and colors, they also have birth flowers. The April birth flower is the daisy and sweet pea according to the The Old Farmer’s Almanac. So if you are born in the month of April, your birth flower is the daisy and sweet pea.

I have included a small daisy graphic in the puzzle to celebrate this.
