we've had that happen on other orders and it is a true bummer. But, just like they forgot about Easter, so did you. I have tried to have a calendar that has dates and holidays on it closer to the computer nowdays because of that. That way, when I'm talking to the ordering folks I can say, "what does having (whatever holiday) during production make?" When I do this, they are like, "Uh, wow, let me see. hold on." I think it is so funny.
But is just doesn't occur to most folks and we just have so suck it up most times.
Casita is a great place and I've not heard anyone complain about using it strait out of the yard. A few folks have had wild stories of fording streams, flooding, hail, and such and they came out fine with nothing wrong. I imagine that's what you will find so get out your Yoga book and practice awhile, think positive thoughts and bring balloons to celebrate your new baby when you arrive where you're going!
IT WILL BE WONDERFUL. I promise!

Too bad you have to wait a bit longer - just think of as a really big Easter egg you'll be getting from the Easter Bunny!

Here's our old egg (Burro) decorated for the holiday last year!

I use Microsoft Outlook to plan with, and have entered repeating events into perpetuity. BUT it only works for events that repeat with a predictable schedule that follows the Georgian Calendar, which Easter does not.

Is there a published calendar with the dates that Easter falls on in the future? What is the formula that is used for setting the date?

Frederick you crack me up! You are taking this off in a funny direction!

The easiest answer is: Easter falls on the first Sunday after the first full moon following the Spring Equinox.

I have some holiday calendar I downloaded into my iCalendar that shows all the holidays (you can even pick which country or religions you want) for perpetuity.....including Easter!

By the way - if anyone is looking for a really long explanation of how the date of Easter is determined, as well as a list of Easter dates for a few centuries - you can go here:
Easter Dating

Emmitt, don't know if you find comfort in knowing all about Easter dates - but if you order anything in spring again bet you won't forget this holiday!
