April is starting off with Easter and April Fool’s Day this year. This is the first time Easter has fallen on April Fool’s Day since 1956. Since 1900, it has only happened four times: 1923, 1934, 1945 and 1956. The next time this is set to occur is 2029.
While you are celebrating Easter, please don’t pull a prank on someone (the preacher) at church on the holiest day of the year.
It snowed in Westfield! Twice this past week.
