Horrible Truth!!!!

I'm Christian myself, but I'm not Catholic (I'm Greek Orthodox). The bunny never really became a part of Orthodox Easter like it did for the Catholics, but I found this info online to supplement what 4casey4 said:

The actual word Easter is derived from the word Eoster (also spelled Eastre), the name of the Teutonic goddess of the rising light of day and Spring, and the annual sacrifices associated with her. (Keep in mind that while the Romance languages used the root word for Passover to denote "Easter," as mentioned previously, the German and English languages "baptized" the word Eoster.) Spring is a season of fertility, life, and abundance. In Teutonic mythology, Eosterís pet bird laid eggs in baskets and hid them. On a whim, Eoster transformed her pet bird into a rabbit, who continued to lay eggs. Rabbits themselves were a pagan symbol of fertility, hence the phrase, "Multiply like rabbits," and were often kept in homes as pets. From this pagan custom, the folktale of "the Easter bunny" arose in Germany in the fifteenth century. However, the Easter bunny has no religious significance or liturgical symbolism.
Nonetheless, even though the bunny has become a symbol for Easter, it still holds no religious significance. That's important to keep in mind. The bunny is a way of marketing Easter in a largely non-Christian world. If you walk down the isles of a department store during Easter season, you won't find Easter baskets with crucifixes in them, or images of Jesus on the cross. What you will find, are bunnies and eggs. Maybe these seemingly neutral images were meant to not piss off the non-Christians? Or maybe the church used them at one point to get pagans to identify with Easter, because the significance of the bunny was already familiar to them?


As for the actual date that Easter falls on, read below. The Orthodox and Catholic Easters do not fall on the same day.

The calculation of Easter is complicated because it is linked to (an inaccurate version of) the Hebrew calendar. Jesus was crucified immediately before the Jewish Passover, which is a celebration of the Exodus from Egypt under Moses. Celebration of Passover started on the 14th or 15th day of the (spring) month of Nisan. Jewish months start when the moon is new, therefore the 14th or 15th day of the month must be immediately after a full moon. It was therefore decided to make Easter Sunday the first Sunday after the first full moon after vernal equinox. Or more precisely: Easter Sunday is the first Sunday after the "official" full moon on or after the "official" vernal equinox. The official vernal equinox is always 21 March. The official full moon may differ from the real full moon by one or two days. (Note, however, that historically, some countries have used the real (astronomical) full moon instead of the official one when calculating Easter.

The Greek Orthodox Church does not always celebrate Easter on the same day as the Catholic and Protestant countries. The reason is that the Orthodox Church uses the Julian calendar when calculating Easter. This is case even in the churches that otherwise use the Gregorian calendar. When the Greek Orthodox Church in 1923 decided to change to the Gregorian calendar (or rather: a Revised Julian Calendar), they chose to use the astronomical full moon as the basis for calculating Easter, rather than the "official" full moon described in the previous sections. And they chose the meridian of Jerusalem to serve as definition of when a Sunday starts. However, except for some sporadic use the 1920s, this system was never adopted in practice.
The last sentence in the last quote is only partly true. There are still churches within Orthodoxy that follow the old calendar. They are called "palioimerologites", which literally means "old calendar people". Nonetheless, one thing remains true about the Orthodox Easter -- it cannot fall before the vernal equinox.

I wish I knew more about the Catholic variant...

Which church?

Are you sure the leap-year isn't because of the stray caused by missed periods every now and then? (j/k)
