The UMass Football Blog wishes the UMass Football on-line community a Happy Easter.
As you know from my "About Me" section in the blog, I'm also an amateur astronomer. Easter is an astronomical holiday since it tracks the Passover date based on a lunar calender.
Easter is always the first Sunday, after the first full moon, after the Vernal Equnox.
Easter won't fall this early again (on March 23rd) until 2160 and won't fall on an earlier date (Mach 22nd) untill 2285. Wonder if we will make the playoffs that year...
Find the Easter date for any date.
