    The Speedmaster Moonwatch is a great choice for Easter, considering how the date for this holiday is determined.

    Easter is on the first Sunday after the full moon following the Vernal Equinox, the first day of Spring. It was set by the Council of Nicaea in 325 A.D. which as you remember was called by the Emperor Constantine. Because of the formula's basis in Astronomy, Easter can never be later than April 25 nor earlier than March 22. Passover, on the other hand is on the 15th day of the month of Nisan. Now as you may have guessed, the Council of Nicaea suspected that not everyone's calendar, even with the picture of the two kittens climbing out of a basket, would have the month of Nisan on it. So to avoid bothering their Jewish neighbors by asking each Spring when is the 15th of Nisan, they approximated the date with the above mentioned astronomical formula. Since the month of Nisan always starts on a new moon (as does every month in the Jewish calendar), the 15th of the month would be at - or proximate to - a full moon. That's why the two holidays are usually tied so closely together each year. Passover was on Thursday before the first Easter. (The Last Supper was, in fact, a Seder or Passover ritual meal.) This year, however, Passover started at sundown on March 30, one of the narrowest spreads ever. Easter is different for orthodox Christians since they use the old Julian calendar, devised by Julius Caesar. This year Orthodox Easter is April 8th.

    Picking nits perhaps, but I believe it’s actually the first Sunday following the first full moon occurring on or after the equinox. :)
