We asked a kiwi in our office to give us a New Zealander's perspective on ANZAC Day... Was it celebrated differently in New Zealand? This is what Dominic had to say.ANZAC day in New Zealand is celebrated much the same as it is in Australia but with a few differences. At the end of the day we did fight together and you can’t have ANZAC without NZ. We join nations on this day to remember the sacrifice our grandfathers made for these two great countries, so maybe the old ‘Eastern Australia’ joke isn’t quite as bad on this one day of the year.
