"The date of Easter in Western Christianity is based on the Julian calendar (a reform of the Roman calendar introduced by Julius Caesar in 46 BC), and varies between the 22 March and the 25 April.
In Eastern Christianity (the Christian traditions and churches that developed in the Balkans, Eastern Europe, Asia Minor, the Middle East, Africa, India and parts of the Far East over several centuries of religious antiquity) the calculations are based on the Gregorian calendar, in which the celebration of Easter varies between the 4 April and the 8 May."
