We don't get any time off from the gov't in observation of Easter. But I'll be spending that Sunday at church and then taking mom to lunch

No time off Friday or Monday here. Boy that would be nice. A bunch of the public schools start their Spring Break's at the end of the day on Friday though.

Brendan and I will be stopping at his parents house for a couple of hours early on Sunday, then heading up to my parents house for the rest of the day. We always have a big Easter dinner!

Not us, not anymore. We USED TO get Good Friday as a holiday but they nixed it two years ago. And we don't get the following Monday off. No biggie.

Easter is this Sunday. The date of Easter is kinda screwy...to me at least! If it wasn't on the calendar, I wouldn't have a clue when it is. Here's an explanation of how it's figured:

Quote:
Prior to A.D. 325, Easter was variously celebrated on different days of the week, including Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. In that year, the Council of Nicaea was convened by emperor Constantine. It issued the Easter Rule which states that Easter shall be celebrated on the first Sunday that occurs after the first full moon on or after the vernal equinox. However, a caveat must be introduced here. The "full moon" in the rule is the ecclesiastical full moon, which is defined as the fourteenth day of a tabular lunation, where day 1 corresponds to the ecclesiastical New Moon. It does not always occur on the same date as the astronomical full moon. The ecclesiastical "vernal equinox" is always on March 21. Therefore, Easter must be celebrated on a Sunday between the dates of March 22 and April 25.
Confused yet? Me too!

But anyway...no, I don't get any time off for Easter. Next day off for a holiday isn't until May for Memorial Day.

Well I didn't get them off as a holiday but I'm taking Friday and Monday off as vacation days. I'm so looking forward to spending some time at home, hopefully I get the bulk of my spring cleaning done.

I have to work that entire weekend, but that's just where my shift falls. I had Christmas Eve and Day off while someone else had to work, so it's all fair.

I have friday off and my coworker has saturday off, so we're open both days. I wanted monday but it didn't work out like that
post #17 of 24
Well I get Mondays off from work always... but I think I still have class. And I have to work this Friday but I get holiday pay.

We are open with reduced staff on Friday-I usually work as I can use this as a vacation day later in the yes. My company gives us off Monday too-but its called a "floating holiday" so the boss moves it to a day the Federal Reserve system is closed-ie Presidents Day which was Feb 21. If Easter would have been in April I would have probably asked for it off as I would like to prune my shrubs!!

Yep, I get Friday, Monday and Tuesday (as well as the weekend of course)

In high school we got friday and monday off. But the University gives us only Friday off. It kinda sucks. I have to cut Easter short to come home. I can't wait to go home. My kitten is visting my parents for the week.

I finally get Easter Sunday off. I've never had Easter off since I've worked at LJS. I was told since you have no kids, you'll have to work Easter. That went on every year for the last 15. Well this year, I get Easter off! I'm so EXCITED!!!
