About a public holiday when you don't work and thus it doesn't change your day to day living???
ANZAC Day was yesterday. Yesterday was the day after Easter Sunday and is normally the public holiday for Easter. Instead it was a public holiday for Anzac Day. Make sense thus far? Today is also a public holiday. For Easter. A little confusing but it has left us with a five day weekend.
A forum post yesterday sparked this. Someone claims that Anzac Day this year was a joke as we had a five day weekend. She could not seem to understand that yesterday was the holiday for Anzac Day and today is Easter Tuesday. We (those who work, not her dole bludging butt) apparently forced the government into the extra public holiday because we felt we deserved it. This means that Anzac Day is nothing more than a joke and an excuse for a day off work.
WTF?? For starters, no one I know complained about Easter and Anzac Day coinciding. Secondly, Anzac Day has never been and never will be a joke! I'm sure all those who arose early yesterday to attend dawn services were sitting around laughing about it. *insert eye roll here*
Every year we if Anzac Day falls on a weekend we get a public holiday for it the following Monday. Every year the day after Easter is a public holiday. This year Anzac Day was a Monday, so instead of only having on public holiday for the two, we still had two public holidays. One for Anzac Day, and one for Easter.
Sadly, this was not the only dumbass comment I heard yesterday about Anzac Day. Some moron on the radio rang in and ranted over the annual football match between Collingwood and Essendon. This also apparently makes it all a big joke. This idiot then went on to say that he doesn't care about Anzac Day anyway and has no true feelings towards this country. Why bother complaining about something you don't care about? If it doesn't affect you in anyway why do you care? Perhaps these two people just need to take a moment and be thankful that they have the change to say and do what they want in this country. Afterall that's what Anzac Day is for us to do. To give thanks to those who fought for us to live freely.
