Quite impressed that I know all of these from 1967 to 2017, and vaguely/know of them after that.

Easter 1999 was when we got The Box and I started really getting into music for the first time!

Congratulations and Save Your Kisses For Me also Eurovision No.1s at Easter, alongside Making Your Mind Up. I guess Bucks Fizz released My Camera Never Lies around the anniversary of their win to capitalise on the time.

Land of Make Believe coulda-woulda-shoulda been Christmas No.1 in 1981 as well!!

The earliest Easter can be is Sunday 22 March. The last time this happened was in 1818 and the next one will be 2285.

The latest Easter Sunday can fall is Sunday 25 April - this last happened in 1943 and will next happen in 2038.
