I'm all for holidays when it means that I get off work but since Easter is always on a Sunday, it is of no benefit to me. Furthermore it does nothing but disrupt my normal Sunday routines. Some businesses close early, some open late, some don't open at all. Those stores that are open are out of stock of some things that never go out of stock at other times of the year. I just got back from a bizarre shopping odyssey hunting for an otherwise mundane staple. After finally finding it, my family wanted me to pick up food. Being only a little after 8, I figured that this would be no problem. Much to my shock and amazement, all of our regular eateries were closed, some just as I arrived. I've been reduced to ordering Gatti's pizza for dinner. I hate to say it, but I can't wait for Monday.
