Orthodox Easter 2019 Images | Happy Orthodox Easter 2019

Orthodox Easter 2019: Orthodox Easter 2019 is on Sunday, April 28, 2019.

The Orthodox Easter, also called Pasca and the Resurrection Sunday is the oldest and most important festival in Eastern Christian tradition, the resurrection of Jesus Christ (the tomb rising) is celebrated after his crucifixion and death. His resurrection forms the basis of Christian faith because it refers to Jesus as the son of God, and symbolizes his death.

In most of the years, its date is different from the date of Easter in Western Christianity (Catholic and Protestant Easter), and usually occurs a week, but sometimes four or five weeks later. However, in some years the Orthodox Easter Images coincides with Western Easter, and both observations come on the same date.

In Western Christianity, the date of Easter is based on the Gregorian calendar and may fall between March 22 and April 25. The Eastern Christian tradition bases its calculation of Orthodox Easter on the Julian calendar, which is different from the Gregorian calendar for 13 days. This is in the potential date range of 4th April to 8th May. However, both Western and Eastern churches agree that Easter should be celebrated after the first full moon, after the spring equinox, but always after the Passover.
