Why Is Easter Today?

Since 325CE in Western churches Easter is the first Sunday after the first full moon on or after the March equinox (or a week later if that full moon is on a Sunday).

The equinox was March 20th. The full moon was Friday-Saturday April 3rd-4th (depending on the time zone).

Happy Easter!
