Today, a day of a three-day weekend in America, why? one might ask, well to answer in a layman’s way, Columbus Day falls within the week. The Government and population like long weekends so it was decided to allow the holiday on Monday and all would work on the 12th. It is not a privilege or a right just a nicety that we have so the hard non-working Congress could go home and ask the people to vote for them.
Columbus day represents a day for which in 1492 three little ships came ashore and called it America. A lot has changed since then. I do not remember it myself as I came a little later in life.
It is the morning of today, Sunday 10/7.
