Will you be able to celebrate Greek Orthodox Easter in Greece on your trip? Here are enough Greek Easter dates to keep the most avid advance planner happy, from 2014 to 2024.

Note: Every few years, "Western" (Catholic and Protestant) Easter and Greek Orthodox Easter coincide; these years are indicated by (same) following the date. Want to celebrate two Easters in Greece rather than just one? Choose accordingly... and remember many Greek Easter observances are at midnight, accompanied by fireworks.
