easter….

Para kahit papano e hindi ninyo itinuring na pangkaraniwang Easter etong Easter natin now…. Sorry kung late….

Easter this year is: Sunday March 23, 2008
As you may know, 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.
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!
