B646 - Easter Act 1928 (Repeal) Bill 2014 Watch
The date of Easter is calculated with reference to the Jewish Passover, which will not be changing either, as I cannot imagine for a second that several millennia of tradition would be overturned just for a bit of consistency.
Edit: It would appear that I've failed massively. I agree with this!
Easter can't be on a fixed date because of it's status as a Sunday-Based event. Calling for a fixed date would make this redundant, as it would to Good Friday, Holy Saturday and Easter Monday.
I propose a slight change to this bill, being that the date is kept fixed to a fortnightly, or even a weekly, period, as opposed to a single day. Although this would mean that we would still lack a fixed Easter date, it would still allow us to more properly co-ordinate the events surrounding the occasion.
