The month of Nisan in the Hebrew lunar calendar roughly corresponds to the period from mid-March through mid-April in the Gregorian solar calendar, although the exact Gregorian dates on which the Hebrew month begins and ends can vary slightly from year to year (just as the date of Easter for Christians can vary from year to year, because of being based on the date of the first full moon after the vernal (spring) equinox).
