Should Sorry Day be a public holiday?

Vote here.

I personally don’t see too much significance in having one, especially when all that public holidays become is a general excuse to have the day off work and bludge (see Melbourne Cup Day for an example). I agree that there should be a day that is designated as Sorry Day, but whether it is in the same realm as Anzac Day, Australia Day and other historically important (not to say that Sorry Day isn’t this) occasions I’m not sure of.

Perhaps a greater emphasis on the circumstances leading to the apology could be intertwined with Australia Day, so that the sometimes used tag of Invasion Day can come closer to being put to bed.
