One of the most significant days in the Christian calendar, Easter, will be observed by many Kenyans this year.

Easter is a movable feast, in contrast to Christmas, which is observed on the same day each year (December 25). This implies that it can fall on any Sunday between March 22 and April 25 and that its date varies every year.

Traditions and history

Easter is usually observed on a weekend, but because it is connected to the Jewish festival of Passover, which is based on the lunar calendar, the precise day varies every year.

The lunar calendar, which is around 11 days shorter than the solar calendar we use every day, is based on the phases of the moon, according to Christian preacher Mary Fairchild.
