Easter always occurs in the range March 22 through April 25, that is, over a 35-day period. Here's something interesting I calculated:

- Define an early Easter as one that falls in the first 11 days of this period (March 22 through April 1).

- Define a late Easter as one that falls in the last 10 days of this period (April 16 through April 25).

- You never get two years in a row with early Easters, and you never get two years in a row with late Easters. (This also means that Easter never falls in March two years in a row.)

The dates of Easter repeat over an incredibly long period of 5,700,000 years (in the Gregorian calendar that we currently use).
