So this "research" you did didn't include anything about how the date of Easter is controlled by the moon? Because it is. Easter falls differently every year because it's dictated by the first full moon after the spring equinox.
So yeah, Easter isn't set up to never fall around Passover, but not because you can't chose a date for it. And actually, Easter can easily and often fall during Passover week, because "Passover begins on the 15th day of the month of Nisan . . . the 14th day of Nisan begins on the night of a full moon after the northern vernal equinox." In other words, they are both holidays controlled by the same equinox and phase of the moon. Which is not rooted in old Pagan traditions at all.
I support CartmanxStan
Cartman, Stan, Kenny, Butters, Clyde and Bebe are my favs.

What the hell was with that Bobo character. South Park is getting sillier and sillier, in a bad way. Cartman had some ridiculous moments in the 'Reverse Cowgirl' episode, and the last episode of season 15 had that annoying character making jokes about Penn State and giving everybody his headshots.
Jewpacabra was a mediocre episode: The show was fairly well written, but the plot of this episode is only ok and it had very few funny moments (also: that ancient Egypt part was pretty bad).
The South Park episodes of this season and season 15 are very much like Jewpacabra: good writing, but mediocre plot and only a handful of funny jokes.
Everything that came before season 15 was pure genius: Great writing, great plots and alot of really funny moments. I'm not giving up on South Park, but something has to change.
Nothing is going to change, nothing has to change. There is no going back to the "classic South Park" ever. Matt & Trey are older and they and South Park's writing style has moved on,... forward,... however you want to say it.
icenick I'm not really replying just to you, but to all the people who complain about how South Park is now different from the "good old days" South Park has moved on if for no other reason than that M&T are in their mid-40's now, not early 20's. It's not possable for them to write the show like they did before. And I for one am grateful for that. To the people who really hate the way the show is now,... sorry but all you can do is go buy the earlier seasons dvds and just watch those. South Park has grown-up, accept it, or move on.
Great post! You said it much better than I could have.

Favorite Episode: Cartman's Incredible Gift
Favorite Pairing: Randy x Sharon
This weeks episode had its moments but the flow of the episode was all over the place. Not horrible. Not amazing. It has been a good season thus far. I'd give this episode a 7/10
One thing I noticed is that a lot of people that said the episode was horrible loved Reverse Cowgirl. Interesting.

There are times when I really hope they don't.

Yeah, I kinda felt it was all over the place too, but for some reason it just seemed to work.

Once the Jews rejected Christianity as a Jewish sect, it didn't make much sense for Christians to follow the Jewish calendar, and so Easter was calculated as close to the Jewish Passover as possible while keeping it on a Sunday, as it was on a Sunday (or sometime Saturday night) when Jesus arose from the dead.
And while Christians do observe Christmas as Jesus' birthday, they know that the actual day of birth is not known, but other possible dates of birth are in late March (though there are no Passover references in the Christmas story) or late September.

Aw, there's a sequel? ...dunno if that's cool or not... The first one was okay, but I really only saw the last half of it.
In answer to your questien, No. I don't believe so.
