Nope.

I don't work Sundays unless I'm really backed up as a result of the weather, but even so, I wouldn't work a major holiday/Sunday.

People don't want/expect you to either.
I worked 3 jobs yesterday where they paid me an extra "tip" for "coming over on a holiday weekend". That was nice of them.

Easter is generally a religious holiday so those who aren't religious might not hold the holiday as something special.

as far as those not expecting you to work on the holiday/sunday. tell that to the 10 residentials I'm mowing today. they all called me to make sure I would be there to cut there grass today because I am behind from last week and it's getting long.

any time I fall behind its expected I work the weekend to catch up. holiday or not, sunday or not.

I have told my customers that I do not work on Holidays and Sundays, they not only have no problem with my decision I suspect they in turn have more respect for my services rendered and regards for their neighbors as well. I would never have any customer dictate to me how I was to work much less have 10 customers contact me to make sure I was going to mow their lawn, regardless how far behind I was. Nice to know I work for myself and that my customers will never have me as well trained as some I have read about.

Anything on Sunday will wait till Monday. On Easter, I do nothing from sun down Good Friday until Monday.
