When Is Easter Sunday?

Most people are aware that Resurrection Sunday (Easter Sunday) is observed at different times of the year each year. This is because Resurrection Sunday (Easter Sunday) always falls on the first Sunday following the Spring Equinox  and the Spring Equinox will vary from year to year. (The Spring Equinox is the day of the year when the sun is most directly above the earth’s equator. That makes it the day when day and night are most nearly the same length.) Sound confusing? Yeah, for us, too. So, when is Easter Sunday? We’ll try to make this easy!
