Thread Name: May Day to be shifted?
Subject: RE: May Day to be shifted?
Both calendars (Gregorian and Julian) calculate Easter as falling on dates between March 22 and April 25. In the UK, the financial year starts on April 6.

So some financial years have two Easters, and some have none. That causes problems for businesses and for holidays too. Early Easters can be very cold! And the occasion of many other events is dictated by Easter.
