Recurring tasks around irregularly recurring holidays
So, Mother's Day is coming up—a realization that sneaks up on me year after year. Unfortunately, I cannot set a recurring task based on the recurrence patterns of Mother's Day—every 2nd Sunday in May (in the U.S.). I can use "ev Dec 25" for Christmas cards. I can even do "ev 2nd Sunday," resulting in a monthly recurrence and not an annual.
Adding "ev 2nd Sunday in May" to the list of recurring dates would solve Mother's Day. However, many religious holidays (e.g., Easter) are less regular. Even worse is Ash Wednesday (46 days before Easter). Is it possible to add recurring dates based on holiday observances (e.g., "ev Easter" and "ev 46 days before Easter")?
