One of the things Christianity merged with or borrowed from Paganism, the date of the Resurrection, or Easter...the first Sunday after the first full moon of the Spring Equinox. This is why the date of Easter changes from year to year...it is dependent upon the planets. This photo was taken from my teeny front yard this evening. The March Moon, 98% full (waxing gibbous). Known as the Worm Moon (among other names) because this is when the earth softens enough for worms to reappear.
