New winter holiday

Crown Maori Relations Minister Kelvin Davis is pushing for swapping Queens Birthday public holiday for Matariki (Maori New Year).

I would like to suggest it would be far better for New Zealand to swap Waitangi Day, February 6, for Matariki.

That would then provide all New Zealanders with two winter public holidays, which both could be linked to long weekends.
