Happy Columbus Day!

Ah, it's that time of year to celebrate a man who managed to achieve what so many before him already had.

I'm referring to Mr. Christopher Columbus, of course!

Erik the Red Day was too long, and no one had any desire to dress up like Capital One spokesmen and pillage local golf courses.

If you feel like showing off your Columbus pride and discovering different perspectives concerning the holiday, check out some of these fun and informative websites below.

Happy Columbus Day to you too! Did he really find us on this day? And how can we find out what day Eric the Red found us FIRST? Or those people who walked across from Asia?

We thought the courts would be closed today. Apparently not, Mom got called for Jury duty. She did not get picked.

Eh, we don't "celebrate" this holiday either...you can't discover a place where there are already people living.

We never thought of this as much of a holiday...only a day we get no mail!!!

Mishkat said...

We agree with the Island Cats! Plus the bank is closed.
