Anzac Day and 5 day weekend

This year had the unusual occurence of Anzac Day falling on Easter Monday. Remembrance of war trumps religion, so there was no Easter Monday, but rather what they called ‘Easter Tuesday’ – amazingly this meant a FIVE DAY BANK HOLIDAY WEEKEND – that could never happen in Pommie Land – you only get a four day weekend – EVEN IF A PRINCE GETS MARRIED.

Anzac Day starts with a dawn service and they even put on extra public transport so you can get there in time. They play a funny game called ‘Two-Up‘ in all the pubs – and lots of people get pissed (that might only happen when the day after Anzac Day is a public holiday)
