One thing you can say about certain holidays, you know when they are. Christmas is always December 25th. New Year’s Day is always January 1st. Then there are those that aren’t exactly a fixed date but you tend to know where you are with them – Thanksgiving (USA) for instance that is always on the fourth Thursday of November.

But I have never been able to work out the logic of some of the others – Mardi Gras for example, which is based on when Easter falls. Great … if you know when Easter is but that’s different every year.

This can make planning your travelling more tricky if you like to plan ahead. So, just for you, here are the dates of Easter Sunday for the foreseeable future.

For dates beyond these (not that I shall be around to need them!) “simply” proceed as Google suggests as follows:

Easter is held on the first Sunday after the first full moon occurring on or after the vernal equinox. From that point forward, the Easter date depended on the ecclesiastical approximation of March 21 for the vernal equinox.

Yeah, right…
