So they celebrate Kyriopascha, too, though they celebrate it when the West would, not when the Julian calendar has it.The last Gregorian Kyriopascha was in 1951, and the next one will be in 2035.In 2011, Pascha was April 24, while Passover was April 18-26.The same is essentially also true for 2001, 2004, 2005, 2007, 2008, 2010, and 2017.They were very accurate, but over time, those predictions drifted away from what was happening in the sky. So let’s wrap this up with two more Orthodox urban legends regarding Pascha.They are both much easier to debunk than the first: Not true.Most Orthodox do indeed put Pascha on the same actual day (though of course the date on the calendar will look different depending on whether you follow the Old or New Calendar).But the Orthodox Church of Finland and the parishes in Estonia belonging to the Ecumenical Patriarchate (but not those belonging to the Moscow Patriarchate) actually celebrate according to the updated Paschalion, which puts their Pascha on the same day as Western Easter every single year.

Okay, but what about 2002, 2003, 2006, 2009, 2012, 2013, 2015, 2018, 2019, 20? Well, those are all recent and upcoming years in which Western Easter follows the first day of Passover and yet the Orthodox Pascha is still at least a week later.

(Lots more here.) This happens once every several decades on the Julian (“Old”) calendar that most Orthodox in the world follow. The next time will be 2075.) Those who celebrate on the Revised Julian (“New”) calendar can indeed, never celebrate Kyriopascha, because the combination of the updating of the fixed feasts’ calculation (which includes Annunciation) with the retaining of the Julian Paschalion makes it so that Pascha can never fall as early as March 25.

The problem with this urban legend is that those parishes in Finland and Estonia are forgotten about. They use the Gregorian Paschalion (i.e., the updated one that came with the Gregorian calendar).

That is, the rule that Christians are not to go along “with the Jews” in setting the date of Pascha has been confused with the fear that if Passover happens to coincide with an independently determined Pascha, Christians would be wrongfully praying “with the Jews” just because both are praying on the same day. And he also doesn’t seem to remember that Passover is more than one day.

It’s not like the Jewish feast is over on the first day.
