    This has nothing to do with the meaning of Easter, or the way the date it falls is calculated, but is simply an appeal.

    Wouldn't it be preferable for the few members living in the UK as I do, and for those living in the cooler states in America, to have the public holiday later in the year, perhaps the third weekend of April, so the poor devils who have been unable to go outdoors much in the first quarter of the year can have a better Easter break? o_O

    The churches could still carry out whatever formal ceremonies they carry out (Easter's not all about candies, pink bunnies and chocolate eggs don't forget) but celebrating the holiday on a fixed weekend in late April (rather than the current, bizarre way) would improve the chance of better holiday weather; that's almost as important to you Americans - with less holiday and vacation entitlement - as it is to us Brits desperate to see some sunshine and fine weather before summer starts and the weather goes down the pan for us. :D
