Do you realize how early Easter is this year? As you may know, Easter is always
the 1st Sunday after the 1st full moon after the Spring Equinox (which is March
19/20 in 2008, depending where you live in the world). In 2008, the “Full Worm
Moon” was on March 21. 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.
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 the earliest Easter
any of us will ever see the rest of our lives (March 23, 2008)! 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!
Easter Date 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 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!
