I needed an easy way to add Easter holiday to an events table for a database supporting a web calendar. After a little research, I found an algorithm to calculate the Western traditional date. It works for any year in the Gregorian calendar, any year after 1582.
The function accepts a four digit integer value for the year for which you want the Easter date. Any entry less than 1582 will return an error message, so I suggest using it in conjuction with the IsDate() function.
Select dbo.Year2Easter(2005) as Easter
Declare @Year int,
Set @Year = Year(getdate())
Set @Years = 10
Set @Years = @Years + @Year
While @Year <= @Years
Select @Year As [Year],
Easter = Case IsDate
When 1 Then dbo.Year2Easter(@Year)
Set @Year = @Year + 1
