An occaision of deep religious significance.

A time to enjoy, even for people who are not religious.

Maybe it’s a day for family traditions. A day for generations to gather. A day for kids to have fun. A day to reflect on a new season.

Unlike Christmas, there seems to be little marketing pressure from retailers. Christmas merchandise begins to go up in stores in late August. Easter is more of a take it or leave it event. No scolding about what to say when exchanging Easter greetings. No obligation to make a gift list. Not a federal holiday. No need for a giant government to pretend to play a role here.

No unusually crowded stores, shipping outlets or ferry and air terminals because of Easter.

Good Stuff.


Most And Least Meaningful Federal Holidays

The End of the Holiday Season is Here
