Default Ash Wednesday and Easter dates this year

This year Ash Wednesday is on Valentines Day, and Easter is on April Fools Day..

It's going to be a weird year!

I don't ever remember Easter being on April 1st.

That doesn't seem right--1956 was a Leap Year, so 2-14 to 4-1 would have had 1 more day than the same span in 2018. Haven't looked--but I don't think the gap could be right.
