Are celebrations such as Australia Day and Commonwealth Day poorly looked upon by the “Woke” culture?

The upcoming Australia Day, to be celebrated on 26th January, 2022 is to commemorate the history of Australia (see https://www.australiaday.org.au/)

Yet, I have heard that Australia Day actually celebrates the colonisation/invasion of the country now called ‘Australia’ and the attempted genocide of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people (see https://moviecultists.com/why-australia-day-should-be-changed).

Commonwealth Day is to be celebrated 14th March, 2022, and with the recent movements toward cancelling statues commemorating people loosely or actually connected to the African Slave Trade, I am wondering about the status of these celebration days.
