When I started at my current workplace, I was a little annoyed that we got Good Friday off but not public school holidays like MLK day. I may have couched my annoyance in righteous indignation but it was really about finding daycare on one day and having this useless day off three months later.
Now I've realized it's not all bad, having a day off work when the kids are in school. A person could go for a hike, say, and celebrate spring by picking up the first tick of the season (a special kind of magic).

I went with the first option and planted some tomato seedlings the last day of March. March! Usually I don't put out tomatoes until May.
