Frequency of the Date of Easter over one complete Gregorian Easter Cycle

First published 1997 March 12; last updated 1997 March 12 by M.J. Montes.
There are many reasons to believe that we'll never use the whole 5,700,000 year cycle that it takes for the date of Easter to keep repeating. In other words, this is just for the curious, who for some reason need to know how many times various dates of Easter will occur over one full cycle.

You may also be interested in the frequency of the date of Easter during 1875 to 2124, or over a complete Gregorian Calendar cycle.
