This year's Easter (on March 23) is quite early! Easter is always the first Sunday after the first full moon after the Spring Equinox (which is always March 20), so the earliest Easter ever can be is March 22.
Some interesting trivia about March 23: The last time Easter was on this date was in 1913 (95 years ago), and the next time Easter will be on this date is in 2228 (220 years from now).
And about March 22: The last time Easter was on this date was in 1818 (190 years ago), and the next time Easter will be on this date is in 2285 (277 years from now).
What all of this means: Looking back, none of us alive today has seen an Easter earlier than this year's; only those of us 95 or older have seen an Easter as early. And after this year, none of us alive today will see an Easter as early.
Special thanks to my sister-in-law Carolyn for sharing this interesting trivia!
