Easter Dates

What dates will Easter fall on in 2024?

Easter dates vary from year to year because the Christian holiday of Easter is determined by the lunar calendar, which is different from the standard Gregorian calendar used by most of the world.

Specifically, Easter is celebrated on the first Sunday after the first full moon that occurs on or after the vernal equinox, which is around March 20th. This means that Easter can fall on any Sunday between March 22nd and April 25th.

Since the lunar calendar is slightly shorter than the Gregorian calendar, the date of the vernal equinox shifts slightly from year to year. Additionally, the ecclesiastical full moon used for determining the date of Easter doesn't always correspond exactly with the astronomical full moon, which can cause further variation in the date.

So while the date of Easter may seem a bit unpredictable, it's all based on a fascinating combination of lunar cycles and astronomical calculations.
