For instance, if a family member or close friend had died in years past on a Good Friday, or say the preceding week, when Easter rolls around so too does the very strong memories of their death.
Of course this is not the actual anniversary. With Easter following the lunar calendar (Easter falling on the first Sunday following the full Moon that occurs on or just after the spring equinox) those remembering their loved and lost ones find themselves faced with two anniversaries.
If you are one of those people, help is at hand.
