Beautiful street art for Orthodox Easter by Evgeny Filatov

Russian Easter shifts from year to year because it falls on the first Sunday after the first ecclesiastical full moon.

This year, Russians celebrate Easter on Sunday, April 19.

Paskha is usually celebrated later than Catholic Easter, because the Russian Orthodox church follows the old Julian calendar, unlike the Roman Catholic and Protestant churches, which have been using the Gregorian calendar since the 16th century.
