NZ Mondayisation need clarifying.[edit]

At present the article is unclear on this. The date of Anzac Day does not change, -there is merely a substitute holiday entitlement on the following Monday, and ONLY for employees who wouldn't have otherwise worked on the day in the weekend it falls (who get their holiday entitlement on the actual date). Also the shop trading restrictions of not being open before 1pm still apply to the date itself 25th April, and this does not change. Sources here, here, and re restricted trading; here, and here.Number36 (talk) 20:24, 8 March 2016 (UTC)

Why is more than half of the lede about Canada?[edit]

Obviously, most of the lede is of of very little importance to the Holiday (using the broad sense of the term), since it isn't even celebrated in Canada. I assume this is the work of some (Canadian) troll. Could someone remove the material on Canada (it belongs in History, if anywhere) from the lede or include citations showing its importance in Canada?Abitslow (talk) 20:07, 7 April 2016 (UTC)

I've removed it. I don't think it was trolling, just the accumulation of trivia.--Jack Upland (talk) 02:17, 8 April 2016 (UTC)
That seems sensible to me. Anotherclown (talk) 10:55, 9 April 2016 (UTC)
