Easter, much like St. Patrick’s Day, means spring and a time of rejuvenation, hope and growth. The holiday also creates a great opportunity to find inspiration from authors who have pondered the significance of the season’s weather and meanings of faith.
Usually, Easter is held annually on the first Sunday after the full moon either on or after March 21. The actual date occurs anytime from March 22 to April 25. This means that February and early March are the best times to collect your thoughts and prepare for the Easter fun.
