Not Just Easter Monday in Australia

The date of Easter changes every year depending upon the position of the sun and the moon, or something like that.

But here in Australia, April 25 is always Anzac Day. If you don’t know what that is, you can read my post about it from a couple of years ago. That post appeared here on 24 April 2009, which is why it was called Tomorrow Is Anzac Day.

Strangely, this is the first time that Anzac Day and Easter Monday have both fallen on the same day since 1859, although Anzac Day didn’t exist then. 1859, of course, is the exact same year that rabbits were first introduced to Australia.

But then you knew that, didn’t you? Because you read my post on Good Friday about Easter Bunny Time in Australia. But as far as ‘Easter Monday’ goes, celebrations here have quite rightly been a little subdued.

Australians are rightly proud of their soldiers contributions throughout the years in times of war. I found this video on YouTube which is a tribute made in honour of one man’s grandfather, but is surely suitable for all of Australia’s war heroes.
