It follows Easter Day can plunge as primaeval as March 22 or at the up-to-the-minute on April 25.

Run to the clerical with a sauteing pan,
Never you misplace a minute!
Run to the church near a cookery pan
and a pale hotcake in it.
First to convey her flannel cake there,
though brawny or reading light she thump it,
Must throw her block to the Bellringer,
And the bellringer he essential eat it.
Then be she a woman or be she a miss
All blown after rushing,
The bellringer he shall springiness her a kiss
And never nous her blushing!
Come Easter Sunday (with sufficient chickens and ducklings hatched!) and, once again we can national leader drinking foodstuff. Easter eggs!
