What Day Is Easter?
One of the most significant feasts in the Christian calendar is Easter. It would be hard to trace the beginning of this sacred event, but most of the pieces of evidence suggest that it has been observed since the earliest days of the Church. Easter marks the end of the Holy Week, the end of Lent, the Easter Triduum’s final day, and the beginning of the liturgical year’s Easter season.
How is Easter Day Determined?
The first and foremost thing that needs to be kept in mind is that although the day and date on which Easter comes changes every year, there is always a definite period in which the day occurs. The period ranges from March 22 to April 25. ( These dates are according to the Gregorian calendar, not the Julian calendar). Another factor in the determination of Easter is Paschal Full Moon.
- What is Paschal Full Moon?
If you have never heard of this term before, we have come up with a small introduction to it. Paschal Full Moon is the very first moon after the vernal equinox. It is a symbol of the beginning of spring in the northern hemisphere. The Paschal Full Moon is according to the Old Farmer’s Almanac.
Now, let us come towards the determination of Easter Day. According to the Church, the spring equinox is always on March 21. But if we keep all the technicalities in mind, the equinox’s date can differ, and it can fall on March 19. However, considering the equinox on March 21 and going according to the Church, the first full moon is around April 8. The following Sunday, that is April 12, is going to be the Easter this year.
Why Do We Celebrate Easter?
Suppose we trace back the history of Easter. In that case, the English word “Easter” comes from in albis- a Latin phrase that is plural for alba, or “dawn,” that became eostrum in Old High German, a precursor to the English language today. Easter is a Christian Holiday, but most of the traditions and symbols of Easter that play a significant role in its celebrations suggest that it has roots in pagan celebrations, especially the sacred goddess Eostre and the Jewish Holiday of Passover.
