The first Sunday of the paschal full-moon in March or April is known as Easter Sunday, which is a religious holiday.
The week prior to or after Easter Sunday is typically spring break for school-age children, so families plan weekend or week-long vacations. Mom and dad may even plan a private getaway for two, which would allow their children to spend the holiday with their grandparents.
