Response to You guys get a holiday in February?
It's kind of like our national holiday - it celebrates/commemorates (depending on your politics) the signing of the Treaty of Waitangi, which is the founding document of New Zealand. There's all sorts of messy politics surrounding it, so most people don't treat it as a big deal - it's just an extra day off work.
