When is Easter Sunday 2015 and why does the date of Easter change every year? Here are some answers from The Old Farmer's Almanac.
Brief History of Easter
Easter Sunday is the most important celebration in the Christian calendar. This Christian holy day celebrates the resurrection of Christ after his Crucifixion and was probably the earliest of the church's annual festivals. Folk customs attached to the festival date from pre-Christian times:
* Eggs, traditionally forbidden during Lent, symbolize new life.
* The Easter Bunny recalls the hare, the Egyptian symbol of fertility.
Easter may have derived its name from the Saxon goddess Eostre, whose feast was celebrated each spring at about this time. Or, it may have derived from the word oster, meaning "rising."
