Is Australia Day on January 26th or not?
All the honours came out on that day, the citizenship ceremonies seem to have been then...but people keep referring to today (the Monday after...ie. the actual day we are having as a public holiday) as the same.
To confound it all (let us rejoice) shops like Myers and Harvey Normans appeared to be trading on 26th and 27th like normal. Some (most) supermarkets appearde to be open on 26th.
And (for we are young and free) most advertising about iut appeared to be encouarging people to dust off the barbie as the quintessential Australian activity.
