Family and Community Day

Today in the Australian Capital Territory is the totally random public holiday: Family and Community Day. I’ve been told it replaces a November holiday that used to fall around the time of the Melbourne Cup.

And apparently Western Australia celebrates the Queen’s Birthday today (we did it back in June; her actual birthday is in April – there is actually a reason for all these weird dates!).

Whatever it is, it’s a day off. Maybe I can catch up on some books!
