When Is Easter 2023? | How Is Easter’s Date Determined?

Why does Easter change every year?

Easter 2023 will be observed on Sunday, April 9. The most important Christian holiday, Easter is a “movable feast.” Why does it change every year? What are the commonest and rarest Easter dates? How is the date determined? Where did the word “Easter” come from? Find answer to these questions on our everything-Easter page.

When Is Easter 2023?

This year, Easter Sunday will be observed on Sunday, April 9. This is based on the Gregorian calendar. However, note that many Eastern Orthodox churches follow the Julian calendar rather than the Gregorian. In 2023, Eastern Orthodox Easter will take place on Sunday, April 16 (Julian calendar date converted to the Gregorian calendar).

Is Easter Always in March or April?

Easter is a “movable feast,” so it doesn’t happen on the same date from year to year. In the Gregorian calendar, it is always observed on a Sunday between March 22 and April 25. However, in the Eastern Orthodox church, the observance of Easter can occur between April 4 and May 8.


Over a 500-year period (from 1600 to 2099 AD), it just so happens that Easter will have most often been celebrated on either March 31 or April 16.


According to long-term averages, the most unusual Easter date is March 22. The second place goes to April 24 and third place goes to March 23. 


Do you celebrate Easter? If so, what do you do? What’s your favourite part of the Easter holiday? If not, what do you know about this holiday.

Who ran to help me when I fell,
And would some pretty story tell,
Or kiss the place to make it well?
My Mother.

Honoring Mom

(1)What images spring to mind when you hear the word ‘mother’?
(2)Can you describe your mother in one word? Why that word?
(3)What are the biggest differences between mothers and fathers?
(4)Do you always buy your mother a present on Mother’s Day?
What’s the best piece of advice your mother has given you?
(6)In what ways do you take after your mother?
(7)What is your mother’s biggest fault?
(8)Is your mother more like a mother or a best friend?
(9)What do/did your mother and you argue about?
(10)What do you think of Mother’s Day? Is it necessary?

We should celebrate and be thankful to our mothers every day of the year but, unfortunately, we often forget in our busy and fast-paced lives. This is one day of the year when we must not. This is one day of the year when we must all say to our mothers, ‘Thank you for everything.’

The Show Must Go On


Empty spaces, what are we living for?
Abandoned places, I guess we know the score, on and on
Does anybody know what we are looking for?
Another hero, another mindless crime
Behind the curtain, in the pantomime
Hold the line
Does anybody want to take it anymore?


The show must go on
The show must go on,

Inside my heart is breaking
My makeup may be flaking
But my smile, still, stays on


Whatever happens, I’ll leave it all to chance
Another heartache, another failed romance, on and on
Does anybody know what we are living for?
I guess I’m learning
I must be warmer now
I’ll soon be turning, round the corner now
Outside the dawn is breaking
But inside in the dark I’m aching to be free

The show must go on
The show must go on

Inside my heart is breaking
My makeup may be flaking
But my smile, still, stays on


My soul is painted like the wings of butterflies
Fairy tales of yesterday


grow but never die
I can fly, my friends


The show must go on
The show must go on
I’ll face it with a grin
I’m never giving in
On with the show


I’ll top the bill
I’ll overkill
I have to find the will to carry on

On with the show
Show must go on

  • What kind of food do you like? …
  • What is your main meal of the day? …
  • Do you prefer eating at home or in a restaurant?

One of the most memorable meals that I have ever eaten was a couple of years ago when I was sick, well actually, just recovered from sickness. I had digestive disorder so I could not eat anything but bland porridge for a week; otherwise I would have vomited constantly. The first couple of days staying at home went just fine, I had enough to entertain me. In fact, I felt relax because I had time to binge watch my favorite drama. However, by the end of that week, I could not stand that meal. I could not even think about it. Fortunately, I was getting better so I could eat other dishes. My mother made me spaghetti with beef and mushroom which she knew was my favourite. It was a basic Italian dish that instantly made my mood improve. It did not take much time and energy to cook though; basically, there were ground beefsliced fresh mushrooms, chopped garlic and onions served with tomato sauce and topped with Parmesan cheese. It tasted like heaven to me. The ground beef was savoury mixed with a little cheesy flavor. My mom homemade meal was not only appetizing but also nutritious because I was not consuming protein and fat for a whole week.

My mom and dad ate it too but I knew they did not enjoy it as much as I did. I tucked into it and even craved for more. This was a memorable meal thanks to the caring and loving of my mother and her eagerness to lift my spirits while I was trapped in my house.
