Christian leaders are in talks to fix the date of Easter to help schools and families to arrange terms and holidays, a report by The Times of London said.

The report published yesterday quoted the Archbishop of Canterbury as revealing that Anglican, Catholic, Coptic and Eastern Orthodox churches are seriously considering the move.

He said that it could happen “within five to ten years,” according to the report, adding:

“The date of the most important event in the Christian calendar varies according to the cycle of the Moon. It can fall on any Sunday between March 22 and April 25 determined as the first after the first full Moon on or after the vernal equinox on March 20 or 21.”
