What's Easter all about?

Easter, also known as Resurrection Sunday in Christianity, is the most significant Christian festival. It celebrates the resurrection of Christ and the salvation of mankind, as described by the New Testament.
Easter customs include decorating eggs (eggs are a symbol of new life), blessing foods, and recreating events of the Way of the Cross, the last days and moments of Christ's death.

How does the Easter calculator function?

The Easter calculator will calculate the exact Easter Sunday date for a specific year.
It includes:
  • Spring Equinox occurs more or less every year on the 21st March. We use this date in our calculations since it's a date that the Church has set.
  • The first full moon occurs after the equinox. This is also the first full moon of spring.
  • The Paschal full moon is the first full moon of spring. It is a simple way to set the date for Easter Sunday. Easter Sunday is the first Sunday following Paschal full moon.

    An example of how Easter date is calculated

    Let's suppose we want to calculate Easter dates for 2050.
  • It's 21 March. This is the spring equinox date. Although it's not always the exact astronomical moment, it is the one the Christian Church uses.
  • Let's now determine the date of the first full Moon after that date. The 7th of April 2050 will be the first full moon of spring.
  • Next, we need to find the next Sunday after that, which will be Easter Sunday or Resurrection Sunday.
  • In 2050, Easter will be celebrated on the 10th April.
  • You now know the meaning of Easter!
  • Which date was Easter 2016?

    2016 Easter was on the 27th March. The first full moon following the spring equinox was on the 23rd of March that year. It was Wednesday. The closest Sunday was on the 27th of March. This made it Easter Sunday.

    What was the last Easter that was celebrated on April Fool's Day in April?

    It was the year 1956, when Easter Sunday and April Fool's Day co-existed. It will be repeated again in 2029.

    Are they celebrating Easter in Canada?

    Yes, Christian Canadians do celebrate Easter. Canada has a statutory holiday on Good Friday and/or Easter Sunday.

    Calculating Easter Sunday dates within the next ten years

    We have already counted the Easter dates in the next decade to save you some time. You can also find the date and time of the first full lunar day ( Paschal Full Moon) immediately after the Church's March Equinox. 21 March every year.
