    spot on monkey 11 it dates back to the third century emperor augistine , was trying to incorporate christinity with pagenism and decide on a "holiday" to call the resurection of christ!
    Good Friday is the first Friday after the first full moon after Equinox. Easter is the Sunday after Good Friday.
