Make "Flying Ant Day" an official Bank Holiday in the UK.
Every summer a wonderful spectacle of nature takes place from within the patios, driveways and other areas ants have toiled to create their nests. Recognising this magical day as an official Bank Holiday will allow families of hard working Brits to come together and enjoy this special event.
Workers in England and Wales get eight bank holidays a year, fewer than any other European Union country and lagging far behind the bloc’s average. Flying Ant Day will be a step closer to equality with our Continental Cousins. Also this will bring people together outdoors getting fresh air and exercise intern helping with people their mental health.
Flying Ant Day will be decided by the first sighting of a flying ant in this British summer and will take that day going forth.
If you want to sign this petition (as opposed to merely discuss it), you need to do that on the government's e-Petitions website.
