Q: Why doesn't the article explain that Easter is 100% pagan because "Easter" is derived from "Ishtar"?

Agree. We've had this appearing on Maundy Thursday and Last Supper as well—reverted as unsourced, of course. Beeswaxcandle (talk) 02:49, 10 April 2016 (UTC)

there's a markup mistake: after passover, there should be two "'", but there is only one. Quote: derives from the Hebrew ''pesach'', ''passover'.|date= 20 January 1998}} (talk) 06:28, 26 May 2016 (UTC)

Julian Easter date for 2025 is incorrect[edit]

In 2025, Gregorian Easter and Julian Easter are on the same date, April 20. The WCC referenced page incorrectly says that the Julian date for Easter is May 20. This is wrong, both the Julian and the Gregorian Easter must fall on a Sunday. May 20, 2025 is a Tuesday.

This page has the correct date for 2025 Wynnac (talk) 21:48, 15 November 2016 (UTC)
