    My non-jw cousin says my sister and her husband are visiting her more often. My sister even put her arms around her the other day and said she loved her. I would like to think it's because my cousin lost her husband last March and her daughter has terminal cancer but I think they might be love bombing and working up to a memorial invitation.

    Hate being this cynical but I am used to speaking with my cousin on the phone and she almost always at some point says have you heard from (your sister). This even though she knows I never hear from her! She knows I am shunned but she, like any normal person, just reacts like a family member would. She's normally the one chasing my sister for a conversation you see. I just wonder if they are zeroing in because she is very vulnerable at the moment.

    So I would like to give her a heads up about the approaching memorial. She won't go, that's not a problem, I just want her to be aware. They visited her at Xmas and said oh what a lovely tree and oh we don't mind Xmas decorations at all! She struggles to believe me when I say what the religion does to people. Who wouldn't. I told her people get thrown out of the religion because of celebrating Xmas but she likes having family around even if she knows they are weird.

    So it's at the end of March sometime?

    'Twas Nisan fourteen when his glory was seen his power love justice and mite.

    March 23rd is it? I just looked up the full moon calendar.

    Miss the traditional annual Leolaia explanation why it's the wrong date.

    Hi Xanthippe

    fortunately the date is featured on the front cover of the Watchtower Issue No.2 2016

    I think the invitations start to go out last weekend in February?

    That's all folks!

    Sadly, your jaded cynicism is probably correct.

    It just saddens me that story.

    If you live in Asia, America, Hawaii even, the date has a lunar eclipse for you.

    I believe it's March 23. And Easter is early this year. The earliest in about 8 years.

    Thanks guys. I knew it was near Easter of course but I forgot it's the night of the full moon. Appreciate it.
