I was raised christian. As a child, we celebrated easter but we celebrated and had a 'passover' dinner on the day passover falls on every year. My family was not the only one that did that BTW. My parents always explained passover as ' the last supper' Jesus had with his desciples etc.
But the calendar passover is the Jewish holiday which in fact has to do with the first borns being "passed over" in Egypt but nothing to do with Jesus, correct? So is this just something that some Christians adapted to fit their own religious beliefs for Easter?

Yes, Jesus instituted the new covenant with the Bread and Wine after he had observed this, his last last Passover, and he told his Apostles to "Keep doing this in remembrance of me"Luke 22:19
