I think you are off a year? Easter last year was on April 4th (in the Catholic church and I believe most others), this year it is on the 24th.


Hmm, I blame my new job, and now being on night-shift. Had my wife convinced it was Easter this weekend too. So.. Double Candy for us this year! Woo.

Its rather ironic how you mention "calculating it yourself" and then get the date wrong.

Yep. I'll take the rap for it. I did actually calculate things using a calendar I grabbed, and ..er... as stated above, was off by a year. Life's been rather hectic lately with layoffs and shifting schedules lately. Oops!
Honest mistake. I should have shown my work, for at least partial credit. :unsure::blush:

Please close, lock and totally obliterate this thread if you so wish.
