Someone at my husband's workplace asked him why Easter is at a different time every year.He said if an event happened at a certain time, shouldn't it be remembered at that time every year, like Christmas?As it is, my husband would like to know the same thing also, and so would I.Why does Easter fall on a different time every year?Last year it was in April and this year it is in March.I would be grateful for any replies. Thanks.God bless.
The secular community-Government, is the body of people that stipulate and regulate when these days are actually celebrated. These decisions are often influenced by balanced economics of the business community.

When we celebrate the Resurrection is dictated by when Pass Over lands on the Jewish calendar... and I believe it floats because it has to do with the new moon or something like that. Jesus celebrated Pass Over w/ His disciples just before His arrest, trial and crucifixion.Feel free to celebrate the Resurrection everyday tho! Not just on one particular day. :-)Krispy

:-) ain't me who responce on that sister, my dear hubby is. just saw it. sorry for not so intelectual as others here. It is a bit confusing really about the date of easter, for me doesn't matter if march or april it is not the main point, it's the reminder of Christ sacrifice had done for us. I will not enter my self in trivial issue than any thing. I am more interested of hearing testimony of Christ manifesting to other people lives, and their obidience in the calling of the Holy Spirit.I apologise for the responce gave by my husband if it's not sound spiritual or off key.But hey, Praise God! Easter day is the reminder of how Jesus Christ suffered for the sin of mankind. .... and i will try to look on that link you've post thanks Tears of joy.
Thanks for the replies everyone. Makes sense about the lunar calendar and why Easter is variable.Will pass the info on. Thanks.God bless
When explaining this to an earlier generation I used to seal the point by singing the first line of 'Moonlight and Moses...' :-D I doubt that would appeal to the intellectuals among us. ;-)
