Australia was founded on 01.01.1901, which is why the Aussies have two reasons to celebrate: New Year's Day and Founding Day. On January 26th, 1788 the first fleet of ships ("First Fleet") under Captain Arthur Phillips reached Australia and the colonization of the red continent with British prisoners began. Nowadays, Australia Day is celebrated extensively, which is revealed by constant "Aussie, Aussie Ausie, OI, OI, Oi" slogans, an infinite number of Australian flags, a lot of alcohol consumption and painted faces. Easter consists of two holidays on the 5th continent: Good Friday and Easter Saturday.
On April 25, 1915, the Australian and New Zealand armies in Turkey (Gallipoli) suffered great losses when they fought on the side of the Allies in the First World War. Today ANZAC Day is a national holiday and is celebrated in memory of the fallen soldiers. The Birthday of the Queen is also a public holiday in all states, although the date varies between states.
On December 25th and 26th As in all countries of the Christian denomination, Christmas, i.e. the birth of Jesus, is celebrated. On the morning of Christmas Day (Christmas Day) traditionally the presents are handed out, while on Boxing Day (Boxing Day) many families leave for their summer vacation, which usually ends on Australia Day. Of course, New Year's Eve is also an important event in Australia, where people celebrate extensively until the early hours of the morning. The fireworks over the Sydney Harbor Bridge, which magically attracts countless people from all over the world, are world-famous and truly unique. New Years Day (New Year's Day) is a holiday where it is common to meet with family and friends, eat together, and have a good time.
