Columbus Day….or not

Today is Columbus Day…lets celebrate!! …or not. I was not aware there was so much controversy surrounding Mr. Chris Columbus and his discovery of the “new” land. It seems that many Countries involved and many American States celebrate this day very differently.  You can find that many celebrate “Native American Day”, “Friendship Day” or “Day of the Cultures” instead of “Columbus Day”. Not everyone was too happy about Columbus and the way his arrival caused the downfall of many Indigenous Cultures and that is certainly understandable.

But, no-matter what your oppion of ‘ole Chris Columbo we can all agree….. Either I should get the day off from work or the Banks shouldn’t be closed!
