Every year Easter gets less and less attention and becomes a last minute rush for what to do unless you are more traditional. Did you know that Easter is celebrated in the Spring in the Northern Hemisphere and in the Autumn in the Southern Hemisphere. For us in the Northern Hemisphere it is celebrated in March or April depending on the lunisolar calendar.
This year it is on Sunday, April 24. For those of us in Northeastern Wisconsin – it is happening after an eventful tornado and snow shower, so the Easter Egg hunt might be damp.
