Why is Easter on a different day each year?

 

Why is Easter on a different day each year?

 

 

 

In 325 AD, the Council of Nicea set the date for the celebration of Easter as the first Sunday after the first full moon following the spring equinox. For this reason, the date will change each year and can fall anywhere from March 22 to April 25.
