Did you know…?

  • The word Easter derives from the name of an Anglo-Saxon goddess, Eostre, whose festival was celebrated at the vernal equinox. Eostre also gave her name to oestrogen, the female hormone.
  • Easter is a moveable feast which means it does not fall on a fixed calendar date. As established by the First Council of Nicaea in 325, Easter falls on the first Sunday after the full moon following the northern hemisphere’s vernal equinox.
