Im going back on Tuesday, and am in one of the few counties that are going back then. Its annoying, when I was on holiday, most of the tourist type shops were closed, because not many people where on the easter break. But I still walked past the school and laughed.

Hmm...

May have something to do with the fact I go to a private school, so they don't have to conform to what the government says :P

Easter holidays tend to be set by schools themselves, or by LEAs- central government doesn't get a say. If they did, we might have holidays that were more similar across the UK. The main problem, though, is the ridiculous calculation to get the date of Easter each year. Why it can't just be fixed I don't know.

Ah, right.
(anyway, I was replying to Topper's comment that some counties are going to have standardised terms)

Indeed.
It's something crazy like 'the nearest Sunday to the nearest [some phase of the moon] to [some date]', because it was originally a pagan festival; Christianity just borrowed it and decided not to change the date (even though it's somewhat suspicious, considering the Christian version supposedly celebrates an event that happened on a specific day :P)

It celebrates an event which happened at a particular phase of the moon. Passover - like most of the major Jewish festivals - is related to the moon.  Easter almost always follows Passover (this year is Jewish leap year so, unusually, Easter coincided with Purim, instead).

Yes, apparently it has to do with the moon phases, and eclipses, as there was an eclipse when Jesus was on the cross. Apparently there are a *lot* of calculations to sort out when Easter is!  :P

May be slightly late due to the downloads which we apparently need. Ah well, I'll be in ASAP.

Yeah, I noticed those a couple of days ago, when I went in to see if anyone was around (they weren't :P)

Ah well, I'll be in ASAP.
Good good - I'm looking forward to it, as I actually managed to get in-world this time :P

This new one says that my graphics card and my systems requirements are not up to scratch... was not happy. Plus the thing has downgraded all my settings. Therfore all the other avs aren't v good quality, plus avs now dont type, they hold ther hands at typing level. Not happy with new software at all.

It claims it needs that, but it only really needs it on high settings.

Try zooming in on the avatars - if you go close by, it uses the detailed versions.
