This is probably a stupid question, but I was just thinking about how Easter is not really like Christmas, which always falls on a specific date, December 25th (RCC). Easter always falls on a Sunday, but it’s never the same from year to year. Every year it changes. Sometimes it might be a few weeks earlier or later than it is this year. How do Christians who belong to non-denominational or other Christian churches, that don’t follow a formal ‘liturgical year’, know which Sunday Easter should actually fall on?
I know that for the Greek Orthodox Church, Easter is not usually celebrated on the same Sunday as the RCC, but that’s because they follow a different liturgical calendar than Rome does. But, from what I’ve seen, most non-Catholic Christian churches (at least in the USA) seem to celebrate it according to the Roman calendar. What would they do without following the RCC calendar? How would they choose the day? :hmmm:
