The Earliest Easter You Will Ever See!

From My Dad (who got it from a co-worker):

Have you realized how early Easter is this year? As you may have heard,Easter is always the 1st Sunday after the 1st full moon after the SpringEquinox (which is March 20). This dating of Easter is based on the lunarcalendar that Hebrew people used to identify Passover, which is why itmoves around on our Roman calendar.

Based on the above, Easter can actually be one day earlier (March 22) but that is pretty rare. Here's the interesting info. This year is theearliest Easter any of us will ever see the rest of our lives! And onlythe 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 aday earlier!

Here are the facts: 1) The next time Easter will be this early (March23) will be the year 2228 (220 years from now). The last time it wasthis early was 1913 (so if you're 95 or older, you are the only onesthat 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!
