Chart of the gap between Passover & Good Friday
1990 – 2025
Given that the original ‘Friday’, the basis for Good Friday, occurred on or around the Jewish Passover it should not come as much of a surprise that Passover and Good Friday can occur close together — sometimes even on the SAME DAY as was the case in 2015 & 2012 and WILL BE the case, two-years running, 2018 & 2019.
But this year they are just 4 days apart.
Passover: Monday, April 10, 2017.
Good Friday: Friday, April 14, 2017.
Easter Sunday: Sunday, April 16, 2017.

Today, January 25, is the ‘Feast of the Conversion of St. Paul, the Apostle‘. This commemorates Jesus’ appearance to Saul/Paul when he was on his way to Damascus. This is the so called “Road to Damascus” event.
I know for sure that we don’t know for sure that this took place on January 25th. We actually don’t know the YEAR of this event, the best guess been that it was during 31 to 36 AD.
But, one thing is for sure. This, rather than any other day, is the TRUE anniversary of the Birth of Christianity.
Of course, Christianity did not come to be at Christmas, December 25th. That is a totally artificial, made-up holiday that was chosen to appease pagans who had celebrated the Winter Solstice, around that time, for centuries.
Easter is also not the anniversary of the Birth of Christianity. Jesus died on Good Friday a good Jew — the King of Jews; he having been born a Jew and a very devout Jew all his life. Between Good Friday and the Resurrection on Easter Sunday, Jesus did not say or do anything to make him anything other than a Jew.
Christianity, if you go by the facts, is St. Paul’s CREATION.
Paul the Apostle created Christianity around Jesus.
It is, cut to the chase, his religion founded on the belief of Jesus.
So January 25th is the REAL anniversary of the Birth of Christianity.
Depending on whether we use AD 31 or AD 36, Christianity is now 1,985 or 1,980 years old.
Think about it.
Betting against Amazon post-Black Friday and during what is really ‘Cyber Week’, rather than just Cyber Monday, is PLAIN STUPID.
You know, and I know, that Amazon is making out like a bandit.
Others might do well, but in the end Amazon would still have done better.
Why bet against Amazon (AMZN) to YOUR detriment.
Today’s 1.9% drop should be a buying opportunity.
Amazon will go past $800 before the year is out AND ahead of the Fed’s, inevitable (spite Trump), December rate increase.
This is not the time to sell. Wait for it t0 get to $800+ — then sell JUST ahead of the December Federal Reserve meeting December 13 – 14, 2016.
But for now … BUY, BUY, BUY AMZN.
Full disclosure: I own AMZN and I am very long.

It Was Good Friday, IF Bernie Sanders’ Bird Had Been White It Would Have Been Hailed As The Holy Spirit!
What a shame for Bernie that the bird that endorsed him on Good Friday was a brown sparrow.
Alas a sparrow doesn’t count. Just Bernie’s rotten luck.
