If america wants a three day holiday then by all means call it shopping day ,

We have the same issue with the Queens Birthday here in NZ! Also, we 'celebrate' a treaty that was signed between the natives and the Europeans when we arrived in the country. This is usually celebrated with huge in-store reductions on all items!

As long as there are people out there who do recognise the meaning behind some of our holidays then they are not held in vain!

Anyway, I have to go as there is a huge pre-easter sale on and I want a new TV...
