Columbus Day in the USA




Today, in the USA, it's Columbus Day.

When we were kids, teachers told us stories about how Christopher Columbus discovered America.

It was always exciting to hear about his arrival and we thought ol' Christopher was a very brave man, indeed.

Some people now question whether Columbus really discovered America or not!



Whatever the truth is, I'm glad it's a holiday today, as free moments are very, very sweet indeed.

To all USA blogging friends, have a happy day, from dawn until dusk.

As a matter of fact, I wish that for ALL sweet blog peeps, no matter where you live.

DO YOU FLY YOUR COUNTRY'S FLAG OUTSIDE ON PATRIOTIC HOLIDAYS?

I'm glad to live in the US, but am not sure old Chris discovered it. Have an enjoyable day.

I usually put out a flag - I didn't today. We do not get Columbus day off down here. I like to think Columbus discovered it - lol.

...Hi Susan....My hubby puts a flag on the car for Australia Day.. but that's all we do... Australians are not big on flag flying....it's not really encouraged here.. a bit sad really.
Have a great day ... Barb xxxx

We have our flag flying 3 seasons of the year. Once December comes we put it away til the springtime.

It was a gorgeous Columbus Day here; abundant sunshine and warm temperatures to highlight the peak of the Autumn foliage.

Hello from Spain: we also celebrate Columbus Day. In my country it is a holiday. In the capital of Spain, in Madrid, there is a parade of the armed forces and waves the flag. Keep in touch

You are the first person to even mention Columbus Day! Obviously it's not as celebrated as other such holidays. My college boy had off last Thursday and Friday for the Fall Break but was back to classes on Monday. There is much controversy now on what we were taught back in the day about good ol Christopher Columbus. History books have a tendency to gloss things over and as kids we only get the part of the story someone wants us to hear.
