The Christian Year

To find the date of Easter Day in any year enter the year and press return.

By default, for years after 1752, Easter is calculated according to the rules of the Gregorian Calendar, introduced in 1582, and adopted in England in September 1752. For years to 1752, the Julian Calendar is used. Alternatively, you may force the use of the Gregorian or Julian Calendars.

If the All Sundays box is ticked then the Almanac displays all the Sundays in the year, using the Common Worship Calendar of the Church of England. Both Sunday titles and Proper numbers are shown, determining both the Collect and the lectionary. The All Sundays option is only valid from 1997.
