When is Easter celebrated and why?

The Easter holiday date changes every year. It varies between 22 March and 25 April because it’s traditionally on the first Sunday after the first full Paschal moon, and always after March 21st which is the change of the season (winter to spring). This because in the old times, the church wanted to keep the celebration related to Passover, whose calendar was based on the lunar and solar cycles.
