Is there such a thing as Chinese Easter?

    There's a running gag at work that there's a family of rogue cops with underworld connections that is out to get me.
    They were supposed to get me in 2005 in an initiative called "Common Goal 2005." When 2005 passed and I was still alive, CG 2005 became CGIAIOT (Common Goal in an Infinite Amount of Time) When asked what happened to CG 2005, they said it was success, because the common goal was really to set up CGIAIOT.
    Then there were the "Holiday Offensives" and when each holiday passed and I was still alive, the offensive moved to the next holiday.
    In 2005, there was the Easter Offensive and when Easter passed, they said it was really Chinese Easter...in June.
    When June passed, they said it was really June of the next year. At the end of June, 2006, they said Chinese Easter was moved to another time and nobody knew when it was. And I wouldn't, either...until it was too late.
    My co-workers still maintain that there's really a Chinese Easter, held on a different day than the regular Easter and the Greek Easter.
    Is there really such a holiday?

    I know that there's apparently no such thing as Chinese Democracy.

    Actually, it's called the Tiny Asian Easter.

    That was forever known as the Easter when we were introduced to Chinese turkey.

    Just like children in North America, Chinese kids celebrate this holiday by eating special Easter treats.
