Perhaps the OP just wants it because it is
interesting/fun.

I don't know how it is in the UK but in Sweden we have
tons of holidays but they don't have a practical
purpose anymore as many people work those days anyway
(in one way or another) and the shops are all open. It
is just confusing - sometimes something you need just
isn't there because it is a "holiday", and you haven't
noticed anything because everything save for that
detail is exactly as any other day...

I think that system belongs to another time before
pitch-black capitalism conquered everything. Only in
affluent Norway they can afford to maintain it - there,
the shops are all closed even Sundays! Like a dead
city! First time I saw it I thought they were shooting
an post-apocalypse move...
