Why is Easter so early this year?
Easter is one of those holidays that doesn’t have a fixed date on the calendar, other than the
fact it is always on a Sunday. Easter is based on the lunar calendar, meaning it’s celebrated on
the Sunday immediately after the first full moon that follows the vernal equinox. The vernal
equinox – aka, Spring – will occur on March 20. The full moon is scheduled for March 23,
Easter therefore falls on Sunday, March 27.
