I don't celebrate it personally and it is a pointless holiday if you ask me, but why is this not on Calendar Man's agenda?

I think because it is a religious holiday. Christmas is as well but to be honest, there is more going on with Santa than Jesus now a days. Plus there is like 15 other religious figures born on December 25th... but that's a whole new can of worms.
Before you ask a question, please look it up yourself first. Wikipedia.org is more reliable than you think.

The same reason as for any other month. Only one date for each month.

Easter also doesn't have a set date. Its range is almost a month wide. It might make it annoying to work in.

"Only one date for each month."

That's the right of it.


"Easter also doesn't have a set date."

Easter is always the first Sunday after the Paschal Full Moon.

You should pay attention to the bold part.

And if you still don't understand:
The first Sunday isn't always on the exact same date next year.

It presumably has nothing to do with religion, since two of the dates are saints' feast days. Probably it was just more convenient to pick a holiday that occurred on a fixed day in the month. Also, the Orthodox used a different date for Easter, so that could have caused some confusion, maybe.

I know that. I can calculate that exact moon phase with a three step algorithm. I'm fully aware it doesn't happen on the same day each year.

Because the world doesn't appreciate Jesus like they should.
