Since the date of the Greek Orthodox Easter is based on a modified Julian calendar (while the Western world uses the Gregorian calendar), the festivities sometimes do not usually occur at the same time as other Christian Easter celebrations.
In 2013, Greek Orthodox Easter is celebrated more than a month later than Easter observances in the Western church this year — on Sunday, May 5, 2013
