Default Date of Easter

I use my mobile phone's calendar to plan meetings etc. I am rather disappointed that it doesn't yet
show the date of Easter this year, only a few weeks away. It is set to display UK holidays, and
last year's Easter is there.

Are all phones the same or is it just the Sony Xperia?

Mine shows it - Galaxy S% mini, with software replaced. Maybe you
should root your phone, replace the firmware and install generic
Google calendar?

The funny thing is it does sync with my Google calendar (which I access via my PC) which does have
the dates highlighted.

Thanks for the tip - I'll have a word with my supplier to see if there is a less drastic remedy!

Oops, take that back. It's not in holidays shared by Gmail but it is in
Apple's own public holidays calendar. (Too many fecking calendars!) ;-)

Ah, so we now have to have secular phones eh? Afraid that if they
enter a Christian event ISIS might go after 'em? Not.

Easter Sunday isn't a national holiday. Easter Monday shows in my
Experia Z now I have enabled UK holidays.

Technically correct no doubt but does this mean Christmas Day is not
shown (as Christmas Day) on calendars if it occurs on a Saturday or a
Sunday?

It probably has the same issue with Ramadan, it being a movable fast,
to coin a phrase.
