Good Friday

Multicultural Singapore apportions out it's public holidays along religious and ethnic lines. Each major group gets two. So we enjoy the two Muslim Rayas, two days of Chinese New Year, Wesak and Deepavali.

Christians get Christmas and Good Friday, but not Easter Monday. I wonder if it's significant that Singapore chooses to celebrate the death of Christ but not his rebirth.
