Just pondering here, but maybe people were more inclined to celebrate because it was a holiday for everyone, not just those who don't work in food service or retail. Also, I've heard a lot of resentment, both this year and last, from agency workers who will be having to use their holiday allowance to celebrate a stranger's special event rather than their own family's occasions, but I don't know how different that would have been in 1945, I don't suppose it was a paid holiday then either.
