Easter Sunday celebrates the Christian belief of Jesus Christ's resurrection. The Easter date is set around the time of the March Equinox.

Setting the Easter Date

The March equinox coincides with Easter Sunday and holidays that are related to it. These holidays do not fall on a fixed date in the Gregorian calendar, or the Julian calendar, which is still used by many Orthodox Christian churches.
