It's the anniversary of the formal surrender document signing, but the real VJ day was Hirohito's broadcast.

Define "official".

I suppose "I know it when I see it" is the only good way to define certain things.

But technically I don't think it's "official". Not in the same way that Christmas is an official holiday in the US. If it falls on a weekday, it's a normal work day.

Observance doesn't necessarily mean a day off, just some sort of ceremony.
