Why Does Easter Sunday Date Change Every Year?
Easter Sundays and other related church holidays and feasts like Palm Sunday, Good Friday, Ash Wednesday, and others are tagged as Moveable Feasts. This is because they don’t have any fixed date on the Georgian Calendar, rather, they follow a Lunisolar Calendar which is similar to the Jewish one.
