Happy Easter to every one of our clients!

March 20, 2018

Winter may be refusing to leave, but, spring is certainly on its way! This means Easter - and a long bank holiday weekend is not far away.

 

V3 will be closed from 30th March - 2nd April. We wish all our clients a very Happy Easter!

 

Why does Easter change every year and who decides the date?

While many festivals are on fixed days, Easter is a movable feast and is usually celebrated on the first Sunday after the full moon on or after 21 March because it is based on the lunar calendar.

The First Council of Nicea was a council of Christian bishops convened in Nicaea in Bithynia by the Roman Emperor Constantine I in AD 325.

 

They made decisions in an effort to attain a consensus on several Christian topics.

Based on the paschal full moon, it was decided by the bishops that Easter Day would fall on the next full moon after the spring equinox. This was because Easter must fall on a Sunday as it was the day of Christ’s Resurrection.

 

Why do we have Easter eggs?

Today, many children and families associate Easter with Easter eggs. One source claims that eggs are linked with Easter as they are a symbol of fertility. It is also thought that eggs are a symbol of new life, used as a symbol of Jesus' resurrection on Easter Sunday.
