Do you think public holidays should be observed on a Monday/Friday or do you think things are fine as they are?

We observed Heritage Day on a Thursday this year.
We just had Heritage day on a Thursday.
Some countries observe [some of] their public holidays on a Monday or Friday regardless on the day it falls. What's stopping SA from doing the same where possible?But that’s the day it falls on?
To me “observe” means to have the public holiday on a different day it didn’t fall on to “observe” when it actually happened and still take a day off.
Such as when it falls on a Sunday but we observe it on the Monday.
