The algorithm used to calculate Easter is a complex
one and you'll find links to it, and resultant calculations
on this site - one of our popular pages! Easter's also

getting busy at weekends as well as during the week.

|3688||Shopkeepers take an Easter break too|
I took a stroll through Melksham's town centre this morning - a buzz of Saturday morning activities, with the regular Christian Healing group at the Market Square bus stop, and people popping in and out of shops.

For Americans living in the UK, there's a need to think ahead ... for Mothering Sunday in the UK is celebrated in March (so cards on sale from mid January!) and in the USA, Mother's Day is in early May. You'll get some very odd looks if you walk into a card shop just after Easter here in England and ...

|258||Easter at Well House Consultants|
Good Friday - with shops and stores open (and online shops that never close), but with most of our customers off for a long weekend, what better day to choose to "make the rounds" of hardware stores and bookshops in Central London to see what's new and upcoming, and make some decisions on what we'll ...
