Easter Is Early 2008

Easter 2008
We all know how early Easter is this year
but did you know how early “it really is?”  
The date of this coming Easter is quite
early this year, but check out the details
shown below.
Easter is always the 1st Sunday after the
1st full moon after the Spring Equinox (which
is 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 Roman calendar.
Here’s the interesting in fo.
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’s the facts:
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 yea r 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!
