Are you sure you want to know that? ;-) OK, it is not possible to translate it literally, but it is something like "****, why can't you stop you mother****er" :-)

The map shows countries that celebrate Easter Monday, not those that celebrate Easter.

Romania is also Orthodox, it celebrates Easter Monday, but not Good Friday (Karfreitag).

Spain is somewhat wrong. Some regions, including mine, don't observe Easter Monday as holiday, instead the Thursday before Easter is. And the Friday before Easter is holiday in all over the country.

Easter Monday is not quite a catholic feast (btw. Whit Monday is absolutely not celebrated in catholic church).

Not true. In Italy it's called "Lunedě dell'angelo" (Angel monday), celebrating the women who went to the tomb and found it empty, and their encounter with the Angel.

It may be an Italian feast, however, unknown in the rest of the catholic world. In many places Monday is celebrated as well, but only as a second day of eastern, usually not so many people are visiting churches, and this day has not any importance in the church, no more than Tuesday one day later (actually today).

We have the Pope. If we say it's a holy day, then it is.

But seriously, it's not a "festa di precetto", i.e. a day when a catholic is required to attend to mass. It's somewhat a "second class holy day"

The pope is, officially and traditionally, the bishop of Rome. It means that Rome (and therefore Italy) really has the pope. :-) I don't know whether you saw the current pope's first speech, just after being elected, in St. Peter's square. His first sentences were "Rome needed a new bishop, and the cardinals searched someone for you from the end of the world" (or something like this, my Italian is not quite good).

Just returned from my one day trip to Siauliai. On the way there, there was a huge fog, couldnt see more than 20 meteres ahead of the road. Felt like I was driving between clouds, everything was so foggy. This was what I saw on both sides of the road for the whole 140km trip.

Yet another truck crash on the highway with never ending lanes of trucks (E313) I bet there is no other highway in Europe where as much truck crashes happen as on this particular road. Ofthen multiple trucks crash into eachother blocking the whole road.

To busy traffic, to high speeds, to much trucks.

The logic they have for not making the highway wider: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JC8QF5BprOc (only in Dutch)
