A Call for the National Observance of Easter Monday

Yesterday I took the day off to get some rest, spend some time with the family and to look around for some gear to train for triathlons. As I sat down on Sunday evening with a full belly I realized how much the observance of Easter Monday is not just a good idea, but a great idea.

I have often thought that clergy should organize and form a union. But what happens if we strike? Well, folk dont have to go to church on Sundays, they can sleep in and watch Meet the Press, they can mosey on down and get a cup of coffee and donut. Not much leverage there. Plus if the laity start to poke around the attic of Protestant Theology they find the statement of the preisthood of the believer. Uh oh, they dont need us for forgiveness, weddings, burials after all. But most people are lazy and would want someone to do that stuff for them, so maybe we could organize with some leverage.

So lets go on strike until we get Easter Monday as a rest day.

Join the Episcopalians. It's not just a right to take off Easter Monday, but Easter Tuesday as well. God Bless you congregationalists.
