Thought it strange that the ASX is trading today. Is it still a public holiday in OZ?

A check of my diary reveals that all states Have 25th as Anzac Day and only Western Australia - and NZ - have Anzac day "Observance" today. I wonder how mant thousands here were caught out, either turning up for work or school today? I wouldn't have known except for one or two references to "the long weekend" - but then it's all a long weekend for me.

Hi Craic, It is worth noting that when the legislation to Mondayise the observation of the day when it actually fell at the weekend, all of the National MPs voted against it. I wonder how many of them felt obliged to go in to the office today.
