It is fascinating to listen to adverts on the radio encouraging us in the way we might spend the Easter Weekend holiday.

Have a good time, relax, enjoy being with the family, go shopping, go out for a meal, do some useful DIY, and get the garden looking cared for and full of colour.

While I would not expect retailers to make mention of the reason for the holiday over Good Friday and Easter in their adverts, it is interesting that we have come to a time when many will enjoy the benefit of the holiday without pausing to remember what brought it about in the first place.
