The year when Ash Wednesday was on Valentine’s Day, and Easter Sunday was on April Fools. When we realized this, we found it to be strange, odd, and actually kind of perfect.
It’s perfect because Easter is the day when Jesus completely shocked the world. Even his most devoted followers thought he was dead. After all, they saw him die; they helped bury him. But after three days, Jesus defeated death and rose from the dead. He appeared before his friends and hundreds more before he ascended into heaven. This single, shocking event has changed the course of history.
