Happy Anzac day
 
to all our antipodean friends.

Enjoy your holiday, and God bless all those who served.

Just wanted to mention the story that last year we filmed an Anzac day parade for Uni. It took me until almost to the end to realize the quite wonderful irony that a german was filming the parade. I felt a great sense of accomplished peace at least in some parts of the world. I don't really identify myself too much by my nationality, but on a day in which battles and wars were commemorated it was wonderful that descendants of former enemies worked together to document it.

I guess the Aussies were too busy, watching the march, playing 2-up (only day it is legal to play), eating ANZAC day biscuits (ccokies to the Americans) and drinking beer to be online acknowledging this public holiday.

Hope you enjoyed your public holiday fellow Aussies.

My Nana is from Australia and she was talking about what she did when I called her up yesterday.
