I always thought Easter was the anniversary of the day the Jews let Jesus out of the cave and he tells us if there's six more weeks of winter.

sasquatchologist: OlafTheBent: bake2: My birthday is on Easter this year.

Free crucifixion for you then...

Easter was the day he rose from the dead. Good Friday is the day he was crucified.


Free resurrection then??

Easter was the day he rose from the dead. Good Friday is the day he was crucified.


So why do they call it "Good" Friday... if I was nailed to a cross I wouldn't exactly call that a good day.

So tomorrow is the ULTIMATE TGIF for the year then?

You think this is weird? Thanks to precession, a day will come, about 6000-7000 years from now, when Easter and Christmas will fall on the same day.

My birthday is on Easter this year. Which is kinda weird.

Mine too! I feel somewhat shafted by the whole deal. First I get gyped out of a Saturday birthday because of the leap year, now Easter. No birthday debauchery, just a religious holiday and a family dinner.

Why do we eat chocolate on Easter?

Because the color of the chocolate symbolizes the color of the wood on the cross.

Simple Izzard history.

Mr. Cheeky: "Er, no, freedom actually."
Centurion: "What?"
Mr. Cheeky: "Yeah, the said I hadn't done anyfing and I could go and live on an island somewhere."
Centurion: "Oh, I say, that's very nice. Well off you go then."
Mr. Cheeky: "No, I'm just pulling your leg. It's crucifixion really."
Centurion: "Oh, yes. Very good! Well..."
Mr. Cheeky: "I know, out the door, one cross each, line starts on the left."

Is it me or did the article omit the definitions of g, t, u, v, w, x, y and z?

Plus there is almost certainly a mistake in the original:

((19*t+u-w-(u-(u+8)\25)+1)\3)+15)mod30)+(32+2*x+2*y-(19*t+u-w- (u-(u+8)\25)+1)\3)+15)mod30)-z)mod7)-7*(t+11*(19*t+u-w(u- (u+8)\25)+1)\3)+15)mod30)+22*(32+2*x+2*y-(19*t+u-w-(u- (u+8)\25)+1)\3)+15)mod30)-g)mod7)+114)\31

The term 19*t+u-w-(u-(u+8)\25)+1)\3)+15)mod30 appears three times (and hence anyone that wasn't trying to deliberately make it look complicated would have converted this to a term defined in a second formula), but there is an almost identical term 19*t+u-w(u- (u+8)\25)+1)\3)+15)mod30 at the third iteration, which seems especially unlikely given that everywhere else multiplication has been shown with a * rather than in pure mathematical notation.

In Cleveland, we celebrate Easter on the Sunday following the first week where the average high temperature is >40. Our earliest Easter was in 1966 when we celebrated on July 9. Our latest was never.

Devil's Avocado: so....t, u, w, x, y, z, g...did I miss any?

What exactly do those represent?


That's what I was wondering... what the heck is the point of posting a formula if you don't state what the variables represent? It's just as bad as websites talking about the picture of something without showing pictures.

TTIUWVE! (variable explanation)

It may look daunting to non-mathematicians but the fiendishly complex formula used to work out when Easter actually falls is: ...

This formula is worthless without definitions of the variables.

The kids are grown and gone so we don't have to color & hide eggs, therefore, easter is just another day.

spaceninjax: So why do they call it "Good" Friday...

'Cos if Jesus hadn't died and been resurrected, we'd all be Jews.
 
2008-03-20 12:20:08 PM
And at this most holy time of year, we take time in our busy lives to stop. Yes, to stop, to pause our frantic routines, quiet our minds, and soberly reflect on the significance of a 2000-year-old dead Jew on a stick. And why no one thought to bring mustard.

OMZG, my grandfathers err, partner (?) has a poster that says that. Really it's more like a painting, but anyway the formula is much shorther. Regardless I want it BAD but it's already promised to her daughter, you know, when her time comes.

Anyway, do you know anywhere where I can find that in a full length poster size or at least a hi-rez version pic. I'm saving what you posted now but I seriously want a poster of that to hang on my wall.

So that's the day that Jesus comes out of his tomb, and if he sees his shadow, there's six more weeks of Spring, right?
