In America, politicians write laws like “The Uniform Monday Holiday Act”, but in Japan something so serious sounding just wouldn’t do. So when Japanese politicians wanted to start moving holidays so they would land on Mondays and give everyone a 3-day weekend, they came up the idea of ハッピーマンデー制度 – The Happy Monday System.

Is Japan unique in the world when it comes to cute names for legislation or can you give an example of another?

I hope your next Monday is a Happy Monday!
