When is Easter 2024?

Easter is the most important festival in the Christian calendar, celebrating the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead. But Easter does not have a set yearly date, unlike other fixed holidays, such as Christmas or New Year. Instead, it is a "movable feast" that depends on the lunar cycle and the spring equinox. [1] [2]


So, when is Easter 2024? According to the Gregorian calendar, the most widely used [3] civil calendar in the world, Easter 2024 will fall on Sunday, March 31, which means Good Friday will be on March 29, and Easter Monday will be on April 1. Easter 2024 will be the earliest Easter since 2008, on March 23.


But how is the date of Easter determined? The rule is that Easter is the first Sunday after the first full moon on or after March 21, the spring equinox date in the Northern Hemisphere. [4] This is based on the ancient method of calculating the date of Passover, the Jewish festival commemorating the Israelites' exodus from Egypt. According to the Bible, Jesus was crucified during the Passover week and rose from the dead on the third day.

However, there is a catch. The full moon date is not based on the actual astronomical observation but on a fixed table of ecclesiastical full moon dates. These dates can differ from the full moon by a day or two. Also, the spring equinox date is fixed at March 21, even though it can vary slightly. [5] These adjustments were made to keep the date of Easter within a reasonable range and to avoid conflicts with other religious holidays.

Another complication is that not all Christians follow the same calendar to celebrate Easter. Many Eastern Orthodox churches use the Julian calendar, which is currently 13 days behind the Gregorian calendar [6], to determine the date of Easter. Therefore, in 2024, Eastern Orthodox Easter will be on Sunday, May 5, more than a month later than Western Easter.
