it still makes me laugh that some company actually started making them! although not as much as the fact that warner bros actually registered the domain name fizzingwhizzbees.com fizzingwhizzbees.org

Lemme see...

1 January
Easter Monday
Queen's Day (30 April)
Ascension
Whitsunday Monday ( )
Christmas (25 and 26 December)

And once every five year we get an official day off for Liberation Day (5 May). Beats me why it isn't every year...

So that's 7 or 8 days, but some of these (Queen's Day and Liberation Day) can be in the weekend or on one of the other holidays...
Like this year with the both of them.

Wow, if our holidays are on the weekend most times one of the week days is designated the holidays so that most workers can have the day off. Sadly this rule does generally not apply to workers in the retail sector who for the most part have to work on holidays.

The only holidays when stores are closed are:
Christmas Day
Easter Sunday
New Years Day

But then there are some who only close on Christmas

They're some Christian holidays.
IIRC, on Ascension the Holy Spirit ascended to heaven.
Whitsunday, I have no idea. I think another name for it is Pentecost. Something else with the Holy Spirit.

Quite interesting, these holidays, considering the secularity of my country.

I just saw a calendar with the Easter and Ascension holidays for the coming years. Next year, Easter is on 30 April. Yep, the very same day as one of our other national holidays.

Oh wait, I wasn't looking correctly. Apparently there's a difference between Western and Eastern christianity.

Depending on where you live in Aus, you might get a few more or a few less. In WA this year we get 10 public holidays. We currently get four weeks annual leave as well (though the government is trying to change this ).
