Australia Day 2005

Our National Day. A day to eat lamb chops. A day to listen to the Triple J Hottest 100. A day for Leftwingers to call "Invasion Day" and groan about Aboriginal injustice. A day to watch a one cricket match between Australia and some other team (who is going to lose anyway).
Australia Day 1788 was day they actually flew the Union Jack at Sydney Cove. They had actually turned up a week or so earlier. I reckon it is a bit much that all Australians have to celebrate Sydney's start. At least the weather is often good this time of the year. Few Countries have national holidays in winter for some reason.
