Easter is coming early this year. But before you drop everything to do some last-minute planning of that perfect holiday meal, how about doing your Easter in Las Vegas at one of our great restaurants?

Easter In Las Vegas Comes With Lots Of Options

Much like Christmas, dishes eaten for the Easter holiday are pretty often the same from one family to the next. We’ve all just adopted the same tradition and added our own little touches. Ham, scalloped potatoes, green bean casserole, and lamb are all often among the traditional eats for the holiday.

But having traditional dishes doesn’t mean you have to keep the tradition of cooking them yourself. There are lots of places offering special menus for Easter in Las Vegas. And other restaurants are offering their usual menus, but in holiday package options that are great for large Easter gatherings.

We have a little bit of each on the list below. Any of these Las Vegas restaurants will leave you happy and your belly full this Easter.

Why Easter Sunday Always Falls On A Different Date

Easter Sunday is March 31, 2024. Which caught many of us by surprise this year because we are used to it coming in April. Last year it was on April 9th. The year before that it was April 17th. So why the heck is it coming so early in 2024?

While it’s not frequent for Easter to happen in March, it’s not that uncommon. The last time we had a March Easter was in 2017, according to earthsky.org. But we only have to wait three years for it to happen again. When Easter 2027 comes on March 28th.

There’s a reason the date changes every year. Easter Sunday is weird in that it’s not always on the same date or even the same week of the month. Thanksgiving is easy to remember because it’s always on the fourth Thursday in November. St. Patrick’s Day is always on March 17. Christmas is always on December 25.

So why does the date for Easter Sunday always change? We can’t even rely on Easter always being on the first Sunday in April or the last Sunday in March. The holiday just seems to follow no rules.

It actually does follow a rule. Just one that lends itself to Easter moving around a lot. According to almanac.com, Easter Sunday follows the lunar cycle of the Jewish calendar. Unlike holidays like Christmas, which follow a fixed solar calendar. And since the cycles of the moon are not fixed, neither is any holiday that follows it.

Easter Sunday always falls on the Sunday after the Paschal Full Moon, according to almanac.com. The Paschal Full Moon is the full moon that happens on or around the spring or March equinox. The date of that full moon varies from year to year. And, therefore, so does Easter Sunday.

The Paschal Full Moon is sometimes also referred to the Full Pink Moon. If you haven’t seen one, it’s pretty cool.

Full pink moon or Paschal full moon is the full moon that precedes Easter Sunday. It is called so because at that time the flower creeping phlox blooms. The wildflower is native to eastern North America.

This year, the first full moon of Spring will occur on Monday, March 25. That’s why we are observing Easter on the following Sunday, March 31. Check out this video explaining the Paschal full moon and how it dictates the date Easter falls on.
