Both calculate Easter and hence Good Friday (two days before Easter) according to the Council of Nicaea in 325 A.D. but Orthodox Christians use the Julian calendar while Christians use the Gregorian calendar to calculate the date each year. The date of Easter is calculated based on the phases of the moon and the spring equinox.
