For those residents having off on Columbus Day please enjoy your holiday weekend!
Columbus Day, which is held annually on the second Monday of October, remembers Christopher Columbus’ arrival to America on October 12, 1492. But it’s suspected he actually landed in the Bahamas! This holiday is controversial because the European settlement in the Americas led to the demise of the history and culture of the indigenous peoples, who may have originally arrived from Asia. There is also strong and growing evidence that Norse explorers – Vikings – reached our shores long before Christopher Columbus — or Amerigo Vespucci for that matter, another Italian explorer who claimed to have discovered America first, which is who the US of A is named after!
