Why Does Easter’s Date Change Each Year?

This year (2011) Easter Sunday falls on April 24th. Last year it was April 4th.
So sorry guys, it’s a long wait until we can scoff those yummy eggs. But why does it keep jumping around? How do they decide Easter’s date?

Well, it’s all down to the moon. (Typical!) The date for Easter falls on the Sunday following the first full moon that appears after March 21st. This means Easter Sunday can fall anywhere between March 22nd and April 25th.

The Easter Bunny is in fact a hare.
