Why is Easter always on a Sunday?

Jesus died on what we now call Good Friday and came back to life after he had died, on Sunday, before ascending into heaven.
Why Is Easter So Late This Year?
Easter is a movable feast so it doesn’t happen on the same date from year to year. Easter this year happens just one day after April’s full moon which is the first full moon to occur after the ecclesiastical spring equinox and is therefore known in the Christian calendar as the Paschal Full Moon.
Easter always occurs on the first Sunday after the Paschal Full Moon, which is why Easter is so late this year. (Source- Google)
