Happy Australia Day.

26 January 2012 · Weblog

Someone said "Happy Australia Day" to me. I felt a bit uncomfortable. I've even seen a few cars flying Australian flags. I've always preferred the English ironic approach to nationalism (at least what I've seen exemplified by the Goodies). When I grew up, Oz Day was always the Monday nearest the 26th of Jan. Now it's on the day. I think the long weekend was a perfect way to celebrate our country. But that sentiment seems to be disappearing.

Hope you noticed my ironic link, Jon.
