Question of the Day:

Happy Easter!! Today there is no question on the day, have fun this Easter instead.

Answer to Yesterday’s Question: It is currently set as the 1st Sunday after the first ecclesiastical full moon in spring. (Which is usually about the same day as real full moon, but not always as it is bases off the calendar and not were the moon is actually at.) This is done to put it around the time of Passover, which is determent
using a lunar calendar. Also because the Orthodox Church uses the Julian calendar and the Catholic and Protestant churches use the Gregorian calendar their Easters are not always the same day.
