You’re bound to ask the question what date does Easter fall on every year. As Easter is one of the movable public holidays whose calendar date varies every year. Easter is based on when spring starts (on 21 March) and the first full moon after that. If the full moon falls on a Sunday, Easter is celebrated the Sunday after. As a result, Easter falls on the first Sunday after these key dates. Which means:
Easter falls on the Sunday after the first full moon in spring and this year that’s the 21th of April.
Are you asking where this determining of the date of Easter comes from? The actual state that spring starts (namely, the equinox) falls on a different date every year. Which is why the start of spring on the 21st of March is also a date defined by Christianity. The date of the full moon after spring starts also doesn’t correspond to the actual lunar cycle but is repeated on a 19-year cycle. As Easter Sunday falls on a Sunday after the spring full moon, Easter can only happen between 22 March and 25 April. This is based on the 19-year cycle that determines Easter Sunday. It is important that other public holidays like Maundy Thursday, Easter Monday or Corpus Christi are also based on the date of Easter and not fixed on one particular date.
In Christianity, Easter is the annual commemoration of the resurrection of Jesus who overcame death as the Son of God. While Jesus’ crucifixion took place on Good Friday, he appeared alive again three days later. Eastertide starts on Easter Sunday and lasts five days up to and including Pentecost. The meaning of Easter therefore originates from Christianity and marks the resurrection of Jesus Christ.
Perhaps you’re asking yourself what eggs and Easter bunnies have to do with Easter. Quite simply: the Easter bunny and Easter egg are symbols of fertility and life. The Easter bunny is also associated with the Goddess of Love Aphrodite. It is first mentioned in 1682. It was stated there that the Easter eggs are referred to as bunny eggs to make children believe that they are hidden in the grass by the Easter bunny so that adults can amuse themselves with the zealous egg hunt. But the Easter bunny only really established itself as part of the Easter event in the 19th century.
Part of Easter is of course the egg hunt, which children in particular really love. Chocolate, colourful eggs and an Easter bunny are among the classics. Children also usually get little gifts for their Easter nest. Grown-up Easter bunnies also enjoy little gifts. Although this is less about big presents and more about little gifts while the family gathers on Easter Sunday or Easter Monday to celebrate Easter together. The egg hunt is naturally on the programme followed by a huge Easter feast that everyone enjoys. One popular dish is the Easter goose. An Easter brunch is also very popular. The tradition of giving gifts goes back to the egg hunt. The eggs used to be hidden in the field without a basket, then the little basket (or Easter nest) was added. Little gifts were soon also packed into the Easter nest to bring even more joy.
Children in particular are really delighted with little gifts. One personal and original idea would be a personalised photo puzzle or photo mug. You can really easily make or create little gifts for the whole family yourself. You can find inspiration here. One old favourite is definitely a photo book.
