So let's choose another day. And what could be a more Australian way of doing this than finding a period in the calendar that needs a public holiday.
~The second half of the year is a bit light-on for public holidays.
~The weather's nice at that time of year.
~End of year exams and assessment have either finished and there's not much happening at school, or
~It's in the middle of exams and a break would be nice.
~It shortens the Christmas build-up to just December.
~It commemorates nothing, so it would upset nobody. How great would that be? A day off with its only purpose being to celebrate living in Australia, that absolutely every single person in our wonderful country could enjoy.
Any way they want, even dressed as a Hills Hoist
