Weekly Source Code: PHP Say When Its The Easter Date

Today its Wednesday, 8 April 2009 in a couple of days on Sunday its Easter when we eat a lot of chocolate eggs and spend time with family.

Because Easter is always on a Sunday the date differs each year. By surprise I found that PHP has a easter_date function that returns the easter sunday date given a year or if no year parameter provided for the current year.

Nice if you want to run a special event on your website or offer free choclates on Easter (if you do please let me know!).

Happy Easter!

Hullo Lennie

It would be nice if you could post the code?

I am using the script in my blog (luckily wordpress has written a wrapper already)
