When I learned that Palm Sunday was on April Fool's Day this year... I didn't quite know how to react around my xtian family. The fishies in my town tend to get up-tight about anything on the drop of a hat. How would they respond to the fact that the celebration of Stupid Pranks was on the same day as their celebration of their son of god entering Jerusalem on a donkey? 

April Fool's Day... it reminds me far too much of the medieval celebration of The Feast of Fools. Feast of Fools - Wikipedia

I have many thoughts and concerns about this year's calendar. It is (of course) but an accidental irony. But I am certain that many of you also have thoughts about this and I would like to hear them.
