Religious holy days

Good Friday, Easter Sunday and Easter Monday – are they public holidays?

This year, Good Friday falls on April 22, 2011; April 24 is Easter Sunday; and April 25 is Easter Monday. These holidays are also Christian holidays. Orthodox Easter usually falls on dates different than the Western Christian Easter because the Orthodox Church uses the Julian calendar instead of the Gregorian Calendar. However this year, it falls on the same day, a phenomenon that will next occur in 2014.
