    Default My two cents

    My two cents.

    First of all, I have discovered that now that I have a different email address that I get to vote for a second time in some of the polls.

    Secondly, I must disagree with Cas and Tdol. (Boy is that ever rare!) I thought about what I would say, and since I would say "I'll see you on Easter day" I picked on. As for using in to mean during, I would rather say during. For example: I'll see you during the Easter holidays.

    Here is my opinion for whatever it is worth. (Maybe only two cents.)

    It doesn't say 'Easter day', but 'Easter'.
