It is Easter again

Happy Easter Sunday (Again)!

Today is Easter for Eastern Christians. Its common referred to as Pascha to avoid confusing us easily confused Western Christians. A great breakdown of why the difference between Easter dates can be found here.

Below is my timeline of the Easter/Eastern-Western Christianity Controversy

325: Yay! We have a date set for Easter!
1054: Hey Wessies! Die in a fire!
1204: No! You die in a fire!
1274 and 1439: Okay, we will reunite. Fooled you!
1582: Pope to Orthodox "I fixed the calendar, what to adopt it?" Orthodox to Pope: "No"
1923: We'll take the calendar for everything but the Easter season!
1965: Okay, you don't have to die in a fire.
