Apparently, yesterday was the earliest Easter any of us will see in our lifetime.
I lifted this from the Biblical Studies e-list.
A once in a lifetime experience !
Easter is always the 1st Sunday after the 1st full moon after March
20. This dating of Easter is based on the lunar calendar that Hebrew
people used to identify passover, which is why it moves around on our
This year is the earliest Easter any of us will ever see.
And only the most elderly of our population have ever seen it this
early (95 years old or above) And none of us have ever, or will
ever, see it a day earlier.
1) The next time Easter will be this early (March 23) will be the
year 2228 (220 years from now). The last time it was this early was
1913 (so if you're 95 or older, you are the only ones that were
around for that).
2) The next time it will be a day earlier, March 22, will be in the
year 2285 (277 years from now). The last time it was on March 22 was
1818. So, no one alive today has or will ever see it any earlier
than this year.
