Are you wondering when is Easter in 2023?
Easter is a holiday that doesn’t fall on the same day every year. Easter is a feast day on the Jewish calendar which uses the lunar cycles, so that the dates for holidays don’t match our solar calendar days.
Easter Sunday is always the Sunday following the paschal full moon date. The paschal full moon date is the ecclesiastical full moon date on or after March 21st. So Easter is always after March 21st. But since we are talking about lunar cycles that are 29 days long, the paschal full moon can fall well into April.

This year, in 2023, Easter will be Sunday, April 9th
