This has puzzled me ever since I first realized it when I was on the faculty at Western Ontario: why is Easter a much bigger holiday in Canada than in the US, when most people in Canada do not go to church and most people in the US do?

In Canada, Easter signals the beginning of a season of not winter. It is something to thank God for.
