Easter holidays

Mine were awesome, yet another awesome weekend if fun and shenanigans at Point Nepean, saw some great music, plus got paid to work there, so all was great.

Read something very briefly the other day about the whole Easter holidays. Basically some minister from somewhere reckons we shouldn't celebrate it as a public holiday because we're not really a Christian nation these days, we're a secular multi-faith country, and he thinks we should have a Sorry Day holiday or similar.

I kind of see where he's coming from, but am not completely convinced.

I think we should allow people when they start a job to select from a set of 20 odd approved public holiday packages. So you get to choose which holidays are important to you.

Isn't that a workable scheme that would help keep stores open every day of the year and allow people to feel that their beliefs are supported?
