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 Passoverhas 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.
