I heard today that tomorrow is Australia day......dunno if it's a national Holiday for the Aussies amounst us, but happy Aussie day anyways lol. Wally, I was gonna start this thread with your name as the title.....just to get my own back for you keep doing it to me lol, but I figured there were more Aussies in here so decided against it:hi:
I have never heard of that day, but it wouldn't surprise me as every place has their own day.. so in saying that, Happy Aussie Day to all you Aussies!:thumbs: :laughing:
I'd never heard of it till today, either lol:wink2:
Have fun, crazy Aussies, drink a VB for me (you'll know what I mean...I hope) lol
Happy australian day you crazy [insert australian racial slur here]!!!
Thanks guys. I'll throw another shrimp on the barby.
Cliffy I'm shocked at your lack of knowledge when it comes to important events. It commemerates the day the POMs first colonised Oz. Since then it has syphoned off any residual talent from Britain, thus the rapid decline of the British Empire.
Happy australia day!
I celebrated by washing my car this morning. :laughing:
I drink one for everybody on this forum. :laughing:
Hey, I remember St. George's day...and occasionally St. Patrick's day
Note: My sister was born on St. George's day, so if I forgot that one, i'd be in trouble lol
Paddy's Day is a bit of a joke with the Irish. Usually celebrated by expat
Oirish and Slavs who pass themselves off as Irish stock in the USA. It's
like the Tartan kilts Canadians like to wear, no one in Scotland wears
I actually saw an Australian Flag today :- we are really fond of useless bits of material hanging off a pole and national anthems no one knows the words to. :wink2:
who was colonized (sp) first? Aussi or NZ?
Trick question? NZ was part of the NSW colonies, wasn't it?
We dont really celebrate 'our day'....as you guys, and the Americans etc celebrate theirs:ohcrap:
You saying you don't celebrate the Naional 'Get wasted and shoot off fireworks' day?:laughing:
Yup......I tend to save all the Beer and drink it at Christmas on on my Birthday:thumbs:
