Good Friday, nor Easter Monday are public holidays in the U.S. — though the Stock Market is closed on Good Friday, which as far as I am concerned makes it a key holiday.

But, there is postal delivery, in theory, on Good Friday. It is not a general holiday in NH or for NH schools.

I have lived in 4 countries and the U.S. is the only one of those where Good Friday and Easter Monday are not holidays. Took me the longest time to get used to that. A four day holiday, at the start of Spring, with obligatory ham and chocolate, is a nice break for all.

I am glad that the Alton kids have Good Friday off. Nice touch. Yes, it is one of those handy ‘teacher conference‘ days. If I had my way they would have Monday off too. I can’t remember whether this happens in Alton each year.

But, this is good. Happy Easter.

Yes, it is ‘funny’ in that I am sure that Amanda Know probably knows more than she has let on.

But, is this a genuine Freudian slip by ‘The Sun’ or is it another attempt at trying to be ‘clever’ and cute at the expense of yet another ‘fallen’ young lady — though circumstances, are of course, very different.

Yes, it could be another typo and since my middle name is ‘typo’ I have utmost respect for those. But isn’t this why newspapers employ editors?
