Australian Easter

Well, I thought having Christmas in the summertime was weird, but having Easter in the autumn is weirder still. Even so, we enjoyed a day full of holiday goodies, Skype chats with family, and warm autumn sunshine. I hope that you and yours have had a Happy Easter, Happy Passover, or just a happy and relaxing weekend.

Darn those Biblical types who didn't realize there was a southern hemisphere! I agree: Easter should be in the spring. (Maybe I say that because I'm "lucky" enough to have been born in what's "clearly" the right hemisphere!) Everyone down under should just move the holiday to, oh, say, October. And Christmas to July. Seems normal to me.

Even though I knew logically that all the major holidays are (northern) seasonally oriented, it still didn't prepare me for how surreal it is to transpose them to the opposite end of the seasonal year. It started with trying to figure out what to serve for Thanksgiving dinner when it was 80F outside, and it's been getting weirder ever since! I am totally on board with your plan to move the holidays....maybe I make a campaign for "Seasonally Appropriate Holidays" my project while I'm down here.
