You know you live in a former British colony when ...
an official holiday is announced especially for the Royal Wedding.
That's right. Even though we've just finished up a round of Easter holidays - Good Friday, Easter Monday - this Friday we have a one-time-only official holiday so that folks can get up at 4:00 in the morning and watch William Windsor marry Kate Middleton and not have to worry about making it to work on time.
I suppose it's to be expected in any place that celebrates the Queen's birthday annually.
