Move Bermuda Day holiday

This petition has gathered steam extremely quickly. Basically, the suggestion is to change from the fixed date of 24th May, to a variable similar to US Memorial Day, Good Friday, etc.

I think it has merit, for one, it'll focus attention to the actual holiday vs just calling it "May 24th". I think that having it be the fourth Friday in May versus the last Friday would be preferable, mainly because it will give a bit more space between it and the June National Heroes Day holiday in situations where the last Friday is on the 28th or later.

Who'd have thunk, something that just *might* transcend politics, for once.
