    nor is it a public holiday.

    I dunno - seems to be a traditional thing.

    When I was a young lad Good Friday was next to Christmas Day for places being shut. The only place open might be the odd corner shop or garage - everywhere else shut down. Things have changed since then but the banks remain closed.
