Happy Easter!

Why is Easter so early this year?
Why does the date for Easter change every year?
And tell me why Greek Orthodox Easter is April 27, 5 weeks away?!

Rev. Bob said that the lunar calendar is used and the first Sunday after the first full moon of Spring is determined to be Easter. So Spring was March 20 and the full moon March 21 and Easter March 23.

I wonder why there are still other calendars in use? I thought we had perfected it and this is the best and most accurate one. Still every thousand years or so we'll be off by 10 minutes...

And someone please tell me when the eggs became plastic? I remember Easter Egg Hunts with pastel-colored hard-boiled eggs...
