When did the passover take place?

Passover begins on the eve of the 15th of Nissan. Nissan begins with the first new moon after the barley ripens in the land of Israel. 2000 years ago, observational calendars were replaced with mathematical calculation. The calculation of the start of Passover is as messy as the calculation of the date of Easter, and they can differ by a month, but they usually coincide so that Easter falls within a week of the start of Passover. Note that, in Temple times, the actual Passover sacrifice was done during the day on the 14th of Nissan so that the meat could be taken home and prepared for a meal on the eve of the 15th. Some people, when they say "the Passover" are referring to the sacrifice itself, while when they say Passover, they are referring to the week-long festival.
