I'm so thrilled with my "new" 3000+ Vintage Easter Images ~ I even have this one to use for St. Patrick's Day. It's so unusual to have St. Patrick's Day in the middle of Holy Week and I wish that Easter wasn't so early this Year. However, since it won't be this early again in my lifetime ~ I've decided to embrace it's uniqueness.
"Easter is based on the Spring Equinox. This year is the earliest Easter any of us will ever see the rest of our lives! Only the most elderly of our population have ever seen it this early (95 years old or above!). Moreover, none of us has 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. Therefore, no one alive today has or will ever see it any earlier than this year!"
Hope you enjoy St. Patrick's Day!! I'm off to find something green to serve my Family for Dinner ~ maybe green food coloring will do the trick.
