Ever wonder why Easter is on a different day each year? Me too!
The date of Easter Sunday changes every year because it’s celebrated on the first Sunday after the Paschal Full Moon. This varies each year so Easter Sunday can be any time from March 22nd to April 25th. Still confused? Me, too! And guess what? Wikipedia can confuse you more if you really want to know the Easter details.
