    Well simpler would be the full moon cycle, which in turn relates to the tide, so I guess you could say that.

    RJ has it. It is basically the first sunday after the first full moon after the spring equinox.

    According to the first link I am wrong but in North America where I was raised it holds true wether or not the Southern Hemisphere agrees.

    Easter is set by the three calanders that serve the two main Christian Faiths and Judism. Greek Orthodox and Catholic set the Western World dates by their calendar's. The Jews set theirs by their calander, which doesn't honor Easter, or Resurrection Day, but Pesach, Aramaic for Passover, which consists of a 10 day rememberance.

    Both Greek and Roman calander's dates coincide with the cycles of the Moon. New to Full, Full to old. The Jewish Calendar is based on rotation of the Earth, rotation of the Moon around the Earth, and the rotation of the Earth around the sun. This year, all three calendar's cycles coincided so that Easter and Passover celebrations landed on the same calendar dates. Other years they vary.

    Hope this helps!

    Happy Easter, Shalom Pesach!

    Manny
