Population Statistic: Read. React. Repeat.

In addition to Daniel “Brainman” Tammet, the “Letterman” show on Wednesday also had the ever-quirky Amy Sedaris on.

Like me, she’s of the Greek Orthodox persuasion, and so recognizes an Easter that usually comes weeks later than the rest of Christendom. She had a good zinger about the real reason for the discrepancy:

Amy is preparing to celebrate Greek Easter next week. Greek Easter usually comes later than regular Easter. Amy’s mom suspected it was later because then the Greeks could get all their Easter stuff on sale.

Makes sense to me. Although I don’t recall my mother, or any other relatives, bragging about any bargains they got on Easter egg coloring kits, or marked-down chocolate bunnies; and just try finding Peeps after mid-March…
