Easter represents the end of the great Lent fasting and due to its pagan origins, the church prefers to consider it as the resurrection day.
There are, in fact, many confusions regarding the day of Easter as the date varies every year, so it is determined according to the rituals done by each Christian party in the Eastern and Western cultures.
The common statement that most of us have heard before is “Easter Sunday is celebrated after the first full moon following spring equinox”, but the Western church wanted to establish a more exact determination, which is the Sunday directly after the Paschal full moon. The holiday can fall anywhere between March 22 and April 25.
