PS and just in case you are STILL not feeling the magic for tomorrow, check out this piece of musical finery and tell me you ain’t even just a little bit in the mood for celebrating.

PPS I have another reason why I love Australia Day so much, I’ll tell you about it tomorrow. For impatient readers, there is a hint here. Seriously, you don’t come much more aussie than me. even thought I live on a boat in amsterdam. hmm.

    Thanks for the video. I’ve seen the print ads for this all over the papers … I assume it’s some government campaign to make us love Australia Day? Would any other country pay to advertise its national day? I haven’t made up my mind as to whether it’s good or bad.

    Isn’t it the best ad! So Aussie! All we need now is to be a Republic and Australia Day would mean what it is supposed to mean.
