Easter 2024: The Unexpected Changes That Have Everyone Talking!

Easter, a cornerstone of Christianity, holds profound significance within the faith. Traditionally observed three days after Good Friday, in the year 2024, Easter deviates from its usual April timeframe, falling on March 31st.

This pivotal day is appropriately named Easter Sunday due to its occurrence on a Sunday, aligning with the tradition. Annually, the dates of Good Friday and Easter fluctuate, guided by the vernal equinox.

In the year 2024, the vernal equinox took place on March 19th, setting the stage for Easter's timing. Subsequently, the full moon emerged on March 25th, coinciding with the festival of Holi. Thus, March 31st, 2024, is earmarked as Easter Sunday, signifying the resurrection of Jesus Christ.

Easter holds immense importance within Christian doctrine as it commemorates the pivotal event of Jesus Christ's resurrection. Following his crucifixion on Good Friday, the resurrection three days later on Easter Sunday symbolizes hope and renewal, evoking deep reverence among believers.
