Why Is Easter Monday, The Day After Easter Sunday, Not A Federal Holiday In The United States?
I don't know about the US, but it isn't in Canada either. Easter Monday really is no part of the Easter celebration. Good Friday is a national holiday though.
Not that I don't celebrate Easter but I don't understand why any religious holidays should be considered a National holiday. My guess on why it isn't is if they give you Good Friday and they know you are already celebrating on Sunday... they gotta draw the line some where?
It's a bit difficult to accommodate all religious festivals in the national holiday list, isn't it? In this case we already have the weekend to pray, enjoy and celebrate, right?
yeah, tangoshoes has it right, it is all about business and money in the Americas
