AFAIK, it's the "Friday before the AFL Grand Final" public holiday! Just a VIC thing :P

For me a little gem is when I see new users giving advice or info because then I think "this person stepped outside their comfort zone to try to help someone" and that's always a gem :)

So... this Friday is apparently a public holiday, although Iím not entirely sure what for (someone please enlighten me, as Iíve had various answers) and whether itís a Victorian or nation-wide thing.

Either way, Iím just thankful we have one; it feels like ages since we had a public holiday.

From what ik, it's just a victoria thing. Gotta love having a public holiday for a sport aha

Yes.  It moved from end of September because the Grand Final moved date, and was also renamed to "Thankyou Day".  Proud of our Victorian cats, big and little, for keeping an away final in Victorian hands ;)

Not to be confused with the much longer history behind Cup Day holiday.  Which is what?  Under two weeks away?  We have a mandatory closure for the Monday before Cup Day as well...
In western lands beneath the Sun
the flowers may rise in Spring,
the trees may bud, the waters run,
the merry finches sing.

Melbourne Cup day is just another holiday for yet again: another sport.
We get the day off for watching horses run around a track🤷‍♀️ And yeah it's in 2 weeks... definitely going  to be a lifesaver for some going exams
