CRAP !!
It is infrequent, but both Easters can fall on the same day. The main
difference comes from the Western use of the Gregorian Calendar for fixing
the day of Easter and the Eastern use of the Julian Calendar. There is a
13-day difference in the two calendars in the 21st century, but because the
date is also based on the first full moon following the spring equinox,
sometimes the two dates will coincide. In the first quarter of the 21st
century, both Easters would fall on the same date in 2001, 2004, 2007, 2010,
2011, 2014, 2017, and 2025.
