The Origin of Easter Customs

While doing research on the custom of easter one finds that it's many customs have nothing to do with the resurrection of Jesus. Actually the holiday does not accurately deal with when he died. For example, this year, the actual date of his death fell on March 23rd of this year. With his rising three days later he would rise on the 26th, a Saturday.

Why do many try to associate it with the resurrection?

@anthony1312002,
Because they are not disingenuous posers like you?

The "actual" date of any event is not going to change from one year to the next.

Hello . . . hello? Is there anyone in there?

Hmmm, when did the imaginary person die, let's see if we can figure this out.
