Catalog data on EASTER HOLIDAY compliments of Keith Keppel, and Bruce Filardi:

From Long's Garden, Introducer, 1961 Catalog:

EASTER HOLIDAY (Durrance, 1961) E 10" (Brownie x Sari) This entrancing
dwarf Iris is a distinct novelty. Light yellow standards and medium yellow
Falls are set off in bright contrast by a startling lavender-blue beard - a
combination heretofore unknown. The gay, saucy flowers with their unique
color combination offer a gala attraction in the spring garden. The
vigorous, floriferous plants come into flower just after the tiny pumila
dwarfs and about three weeks ahead of the regular Tall Bearded Iris.

From Mission Bell, Melba and Jim Hamblen, 1961 Catalog (Melba was growing
E.H. before it was introduced)

*EASTER HOLIDAY (Durrance '61) Ruffled yellow, showy blue beard. Delightful
form. Brownie x I. sari	$7.50

* denotes aril breeding

From Tell's Catalog (Tell Muhlestein) 1962 Catalog

EASTER HOLIDAY* (Durrance, 1961) E 10" (Brownie x Sari) A true hybrid with
light yellow standards; falls medium yellow set off by a stratling [sic]
lavender-blue beard no price listed

(* marked contains Oncocyclus or Regelia blood)
