Last Time Passover, Rather Than Easter, Fell On ‘April 1’.

Easter, this year (i.e., 2018), falls on Sunday, April 1. That is perfectly fine in that it is well within the March 22 to April 25 window for Easter.

The only this that is STRANGE, very strange, is that Easter has not fallen on April 1 in 62-years! Last time was in 1956. That is the LARGEST gap between Easter falling on the same day, in this case, April 1.

So, I was curious as to see when Passover has begun on April 1. The window for Passover is March 21 to April 20. So, again, April 1 is very much within the range. As you can see from the graphic the last time was in 1988 and before that 1950. That was a 38-year gap. The 2026 also happens after a 38-year gap. Neato.

Easter, of course, is your original ‘moveable feast‘. It can fall between March 22 and April 25.

So, Easter falling on April 1 is indeed possible.

It just has NOT fallen on April 1 since 1956. That is 62-years ago,

That means Easter on April Fool’s Day will be a first for many.

Just letting you know. Yes, I will do more Easter posts in the coming weeks.

Just wanted to get this out.

Think about. Last time — 62-years ago!

P.S., 62-years is about the LONGEST GAP you can have in terms of Easter falling on the same day of the year.

Easter, of course, is your original ‘moveable feast‘. It can fall between March 22 and April 25.

This year, i.e., 2017, it is towards the later end, April 16. Last year it was considerably earlier. But, in 2014 it was on April 20 — even later. 2011 was towards the very limit at April 24.

Since 1777 Easter has fallen on April 16 elevenĀ (11) times prior to this, viz.: 1786, 1797, 1843, 1854, 1865, 1876, 1911, 1922, 1933, 1995, 2006. S0, the last time was 11 years ago. The 11-year cycle is quite common and you will see it 8 times in that sequence. Then, in between, you have some huge gaps of 46, 35 and 62 years. This is not unusual either.

Next Easter on April 16 will again be in 11 years, i.e., 2028.
