Easter Sunday is coming on April 24th this year.

According to the Canonical gospels, Jesus rose from the dead on the third day after his crucifixion. His resurrection is celebrated on Easter Day or Easter Sunday.

How to work out the date of Easter Day?

The date of Easter Sunday changes every year. It's really a long, long history to talk about the different determining rules.

I found an easy way for you who want to compute the date by yourselves as a fun.

  1. Divide the year number by 19:
    2009/19=105.73
  2. Multiple the number before the decimal point by 19 (105 for 2009):
    105x19=1995
  3. Then subtract the result from Step 2 from the year number:
    2009-1995=14
  4. Add 1: 14+1=15
  5. Look up the 'Golden Number' in the following table (15 for 2009!).
    Easter is on the first Sunday after the date in the table.
    In 2009 Easter is on April 12th, so it works!

Easter customs vary across the Christian world, but decorating Easter Eggs is a common motif. In the Western world, customs such as egg hunting and Easter Bunny extend from the domain of church, and often have a secular character.
