Easter is April 16th

Everyone knows when most holidays fall-- Valentine's day is February 14th, Saint Patrick's Day is March 17th.  Mother's Day, the second Sunday in May.  Memorial Day, the last Monday in May, Father's Day, the third Sunday in June.  Independence day is, of course, July 4th.  Labor Day, the first Monday in September.  Halloween, October 31st.  Thanksgiving, the fourth Thursday in November, and Christmas is always on the 25th of December.

But what the heck is it about Easter?  It never seems to fall on the same day twice, and it can come as early as March 22 and as late as April 25th. This year it falls on April 16th.  But how is the date settled upon every year?  Actually it is based on the lunar calendar. . . Easter will always fall on the first Sunday after the first full moon after the vernal equinox (first day of spring).  Um, it seems easier to buy a calendar to find out what day it falls on!

As always, our designers have put together a fun array of Easter gifts. No matter which day Easter falls on, it's a sure bet Cactus Flower Florists will have a great selection of gifts available. From corsages for mom or grandma to wear to Sunday services, to beautiful potted Easter lilies, for centerpieces for the holiday dinner table, to fun baskets for kids and everything in between, we've got you covered!
