The Easter or Pascha date is determined by four main factors. The first two have been established by Apostolic canon, making them binding, and the last two have been established by church tradition. The history of determining Easter dates has been complex and sometimes controversial, but the following pre-conditions provide a general summary. The Easter date is set according to the Julian or Old Calendar and this date must be: 1) after the Vernal (Spring) Equinox, and 2) after the Jewish Passover, and 3) with the first full moon in Spring, and 4) on a Sunday after 21 March.

Western Easter is in March, but Orthodox Easter is in April this year (2008). The Easter date is determined by four main factors. The first two have been established by Apostolic canon, making them binding, and the last two have been established by church tradition. The West no longer keeps the requirement for Easter to be after the Jewish Passover (see point No. 2 below), and that is why Western Christians had their Easter on 23 March this year. The Easter date is set according to the Julian or Old Calendar and this date must be: 1) after the Vernal (Spring) Equinox, and 2) after the Jewish Passover, and 3) with the first full moon in Spring, and 4) on a Sunday after 21 March. So Orthodox Easter in 2008 is on 27 April.
