    Someone explain this to me please!

    Last year, Easter was on April 24th and this year it's on the 8th. How did this happen?!? Leap day doesn't explain it because it's only one day. Confusing!

    It falls in line with Jewish Passover.

    Here is yet another link.. lol:

    Easter Dates - Why Does the Date for Easter Change Every Year?



    "At the heart of the matter lies a very simple explanation. The early church fathers wished to keep the observance of Easter in correlation to the Jewish Passover. Because the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ happened after the Passover, they wanted Easter to always be celebrated subsequent to the Passover. And, since the Jewish holiday calendar is based on solar and lunar cycles, each feast day is movable, with dates shifting from year to year. "

    There are 10 types of people in the world, those that understand binary and those that don't

    Last year was a leap year in the Hebrew calendar. A whole month is added during Lunar leap years.

    Yup.
