    You'd be surprised how little you miss it and how nice the sense of peace and switching off for just a day feels after a while.

    But there are times when everything is closed, and I don't like it. Such as the Christmas holiday. Just about everything is closed up for Christmas. Can't say that I "like" that, but whatever, it's not THAT big of a deal either. Just a little inconvenient at times.

    Yes, but I am thinking of the people in those stores too. They would also like to be home with their families. That people in the food-service industry are working is a given as these kinds of days are some of the top earners for them and their bosses/companies. If you work in those kinds of industries you expect (or should expect) to work on those kinds of days. For a shop I think that is different. Special shops I might understand but who cares if shops are closed 3 or 4 days in a year. People have become too demanding of some things like shopping when they want to shop no matter what.

    National holidays should be that, national holidays and not extra shopping days. Now it would be something else if people would have to work on Monday like a regular holiday but in countries on which everybody has the second easter day off too, shops should be closed on the first Easter day IMHO.

    Sometimes Dunkin Donuts coffee in the morning. Maybe I'm out of milk or something? Who knows?

    There are plenty of people who also don't mind working holidays and those that don't even celebrate holidays. I don't think employees should be forced to work on those days, but if they wanted to why not?

    How do you celebrate easter?
    I motorcycled up into New York and enjoyed low traffic...except for all those children sized speed bumps when I cruised past that church....weird.

    Re: How do you celebrate Easter?

    Personally, we spend the weekend away at a convention having a good time, we don't pay the slightest bit of attention to Easter.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    Re: How do you celebrate Easter?

    I experienced this Easter very much confused and angry. There was news release from the USA Embassy here that communicated in Albanian that "All Americans in Dardania should be wary while they celebrate Easter!"

    There is a huge freaking Albanian Catholic Cathedral in the capital Prishtina and many others all around Dardania. What do you guys think we are at? Freaking Afghanistan?! Why scare your own citizens with BS like that?
