OK...so do we stay up until 4am on the night of Pascha or the night before?  (just trying to figure out when to call off of school)

The vigil starts Holy Saturday evening and goes through until Pascha (Sunday) morning.
If you're living a happy life as a Christian, you're doing something wrong.

So everyone does Easter the same time this year?  Cool.   :)

Next year, too, IIRC.  I think they will coincide again in a couple of years after that as well.

Reminds me of my favorite Jewish joke:

"When's Passover this year?"
"Same as every year...14th of Nisan.."
Proverbs 22:7

For those who need a calendar date, Pascha falls on April 4 this year. (BTW, this is the earliest possible date we could celebrate Pascha on the Orthodox Paschalion, since this reckons out to March 22, the day after the arbitrary date of the spring equinox, on the Julian Calendar.)
