My Dad was born on April Fool's Day 1934. That year, Easter also fell on April 1. Yesterday, we celebrated Dad's 79th birthday a day early. April Fool's Day and Easter don't often coincide. Easter Sunday will next fall on April 1 in 2018. Easter Sunday has previously fallen on April 1 in 1714, 1725, 1736, 1804, 1866, 1877, 1888, 1923, 1934, 1945 and 1956. (Just a little trivia for you!)

There weren't any Easter egg hunts at my folks' house this year.

Happy Birthday! I'm blessed to call you Dad!
