It may be a religious holiday, but there are many things to say about it secularly as well.
There are four days off after a cold, long winter (this year). In a publishing country, what’s not to like about it? You can leave, visit friends and loved ones, get the kids out, or you can just sit in front of Netflix with beer.
If Christianity is your thing, you can go to church and watch the most sacred festival of your religion without being surrounded by an orgy of commercialism that characterizes Christmas, another matter of religion. These things make many of us uncomfortable secular types.
Five ways to get kids into art over the Easter weekend
Personally, I’m going to spend some time working on my novel. Agents or advertisers reading this, tweet me. Tweet me now!
The only problem with this truly wonderful invention is the fact that the date continues to change as a result of the lunar calendar whim. Easter officially falls on the first Sunday after the first full moon after Eighth Equality on March 21; In other words, any time from March 22 to April 25, a gap of more than 30 days.
This causes real problems in some areas, especially academic ones.
While schools can limit the impact of Easter falling very early or very late, for example, tweaking their holiday dates to end the four-day public holiday or starting it, but they still often face the problem of half the ridiculous short term at one end , And it’s incredibly long at the other end.
Children and young people alike tend to get tired and beep at the end of a long period. Their stressed and tense teachers usually resemble the characters from 28 days later.
Uncertainty also affects universities and colleges, not to mention the sporting calendar, and many seasonal industries.
There are strong arguments for dealing with the problems caused by the shattering holiday like LeBron James basketball, and addressing this issue will likely need broad support.
There are even provisions in the law that allow a fixed date. If Parliament had used these provisions, it would not have prevented the religious among us from celebrating. They may need to burn a few days off their holiday allowance to do so. But this is now a multi-faith state and that is what Muslims have to do with anything related to Eid, that date is also linked to the lunar calendar.
The problem is, if we did, how long would it take before people started wearing a three-day holiday cut for management? It may be politically difficult, but if you lose your religious connection you make it easier for someone to try it a lot, and this country has a pretty good record of sticking to bad and totally unpleasant ideas. Brexit anyone?
