Why the date of Easter is different every year?

The Easter has great relation to Passover which celebrates the event happened at the last night at Egypt just before the Israelites escaped from there that the angel of death passed over the houses of Israelites. Well, as you may guess, they did not use the current calendar at those days. 

So, to calculate the date of Easter or Passover, we need to use the Hebrew Calendar which is the combination of Solar Calendar and Lunar Calendar.

The current rule of calculating the date of Easter is: the first Sunday after the first full moon on or after the day of the vernal equinox.

The wikipedia says that the cycle of Easter dates repeats after exactly 5,700,000 years, and the most common date of it is April 19th.
