Unlike the Christmas mess, Easter *is* at the right time of year. It occurs at or near Passover, which is when the Crucifixion, etc happened.

The reason that there's not an exact match is because the Church wasn't going to try to explain the Jewish calendar to Gentiles.

So they came up with rules for determining the dater that while they are a bit complicated, usually get it on the right Sunday or only a week off.

Pretty good when you are trying to reconcile a solar calendar (the Julian calendar & later the Gregorian calendar) with a lunar-solar calendar (the Jewish calendar) that has leap *months*.
