In honor of Earth Day (April 22nd) and Earth Week, concurrent this year with Easter (April 21st), the topic of today's LifeBlog is RENEWAL.

Easter always coincides with the spring season of new beginnings, renewal and rebirth. The date for Easter changes year-to-year according to the Lunar calendar as the first Sunday after the first Full Moon after the March 21 Vernal Equinox. Orthodox Easter, based on the Julian Calendar, usually occurs about a week later. In Christianity, Easter celebrates the resurrection of Jesus Christ. Resurrection is a common theme in many religions and cultures observing feasts and festivals celebrating the Rites of Spring, such as Beltane from Celtic traditions, which occurs on April 30–May 1st. In pagan traditions Ostara preceded Easter as a time of renewal after a long cold winter.
