There’s a famous line in C.S. Lewis’s The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe where a character laments that because of the White Witch’s rule over the land of Narnia, it is “always Winter but never Christmas.” But, what about a Spring without Easter?
Early spring coincides with at least three major religious holidays — Easter, Passover and, this year, the beginning of Ramadan. All three — or at least public events surrounding them — could be disrupted by the outbreak of the COVID-19 virus.
Easter, Earth Day and Arbor Day mark a time when many contemplate the fate of their soul and the planet. This year, all three fall in the same week, though the holidays derive little synergy from one another.
