Not all fans of the church and crown

Isn't it time we fixed the anachronism of having a Spring Bank Holiday determined by a religious festival based on the phases of the moon?

It is compounded this year by the wedding the following week of a Royal heir which is eliciting another day's holiday so as to garner the cheering of the royalist subjects. It is all too much for the atheists and republicans among us, having our public holidays decided by church and crown.

Perhaps we need another referendum to decide whether to fix the date of the Spring Holiday?
