Whether your celebrate Easter or Passover this week, we wish you, your family and friends a happy Easter holiday, lots of joy, and countless blessings! This year Western Christian churches, including Catholic, and Eastern Christian churches, including Orthodox, celebrate Easter holiday on the same day, April 20, which happens once in several years.
Christian churches that follow the Gregorian calendar, such as many Western Christian churches, celebrate Easter on the first Sunday after the paschal full Moon on or just after the vernal equinox. For simplicity, the equinox is considered March 21. The paschal full Moon always falls on the 14th day of a lunar month; because ancient calculations did not take into account certain lunar motions, this date may be slightly off from the astronomical full Moon date.
Certain Christian churches, such as many Eastern Orthodox churches, follow the Julian calendar, either for movable feasts or for all religious observances. Due to these different methods of calculation, various Christian denominations may celebrate the feast on different days.
Regardless of whether you are a believer, Easter holiday is a celebration of love and giving, so we want to give you something to make your spring and your smile a little bit brighter:
Be one of the first 100 people to love, like, or follow us on Facebook, Google+, or Twitter, or even better, review us on Google+ or Yelp before the end of the month and get free fluoride varnish or free lifetime whitening with a PPO dental insurance plan.
