Happy Constitution Day

July 9th, 2009 at 12:19am

It’s the ninth of July, so I get to say happy Constitution Day, despite the fact that it’s not a public holiday in Australia.

Constitution Day marks the day in 1900 that Queen Victoria signed the Commonwealth of Australia Constitution Act 1900 in to law in Britain.

I’ve argued for quite some time now that we need a holiday in winter to balance out the glut of holidays in Summer and surrounds, and that we shouldn’t have a holiday in November for the Melbourne Cup. Well there we go, Constitution Day, a good day for a nice patriotic holiday.
