INTERESTING EASTER FACTS

I received this from a friend on my email at home one day, and thought as Easter was just here; it would be an appropriate time to share.

Easter this year was Sunday March 23, 2008

As you may know, Easter is always the first Sunday after the first full moon after the Spring Equinox (which is March 20).

This dating of Easter is based on the lunar calendar that Hebrews used to identify Passover, which is why it moves around on our Roman calendar.

Found out a couple of things you might be interested in!

Based on the above, Easter can actually be one day earlier (March 22) but that is pretty rare.

This year is the earliest Easter any of us will ever see the rest of our lives! 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!

Here are the facts:

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!).

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!

HOPE YOU ALL HAD A GOOD EASTER!!
