Christ on a bike. Are these Easter holidays ever going to arrive?

Don’t know if it’s because they are a bit later this year, or if because the Spring weather (so far) has been unseasonably nice, but it’s starting to feel like a hell of a long drag to the holidays. Who picks the dates anyway? Never really understood how Easter is “chosen” – I think it’s someone fairly high up in the Catholic Church who picks the date. The Pope, or maybe even someone really important - like Bono.
Anyway. Nearly there. Taking the time off between the two long weekends so almost a week and a half off coming up. No work, no alarm clock and no arse numbingly awful train trips through to the DGP.
No real plans, but I’ll try to do some long un’s – a last mileage build up prior to the Edinburgh Mara.

Might also give me a chance to catch up on some serious “listening”. Got quite a few new albums as of late and want to get aquatinted with them. That said, I’ve not been getting quite as many albums so far this year than previous. Have to try and rectify that (though I did make a start yesterday by picking up a CD of the Benny Goodman quartet).

Good question. I googled it and found this.

Answer: The Council of Nicaea (A.D. 325) set the date of Easter as the Sunday following the paschal full moon, which is the full moon that falls on or after the vernal (spring) equinox.

Apparently it is very late this year. Happy Holidays...
