    Next year it falls on April 15.
    April 24,2011. You missed it by a day.
    In the year 2012, Easter is on April 15th, because the first full moon is on April 7th, which is after the Spring Equinox of March 20th. Hope this clears it up for you!

    Correct. That's the same date I posted :)
    Easter is the only Christian feast that is considered a "moveable feast", because it occurs on the first Sunday after the first full moon, after the Spring Equinox. It is Pagan oriented.

    Yes but what is the date? That was the question.
    Russian Orthodox and middle eastern Christians celebrate Easter the same as the rest of the world this year. Includes, Greeks, Armenians, Georgians---all Christian nations.
