Who figures out when Easter happens?

Easter is really early this year. Sometimes it comes in March and it usually is in April. Why? Who figures out when it is Easter day?
Believe it or not, the moon does. The Sunday after the first full moon after the vernal equinox (also known as the first day of spring) is the date of the widely celebrated holiday we call Easter.
So the lunar cycle is the source of our date determination. The wonderfully consistant light in the night can remind us of our Creator who came to earth, died and rose again for us. Blessed be His Name forever!
"...and they said to them, "Why are you looking for the Living One in a cemetery? He is not here but is raised up, remember how He told you....." Luke 24:5b-6 The Message
