Why do we celebrate Columbus Day?

Is it necessary to celebrate because some Italian guy “discovered” the America’s

    To pacify the Italians. Other than that, there is no reason, because, unless we count Puerto Rico, Columbus never set foot on what is now the United States.

    It is little known that Columbus was part descendant of African blood and it was the reason the Royalty of Italians at that time refused to back his shortcut to India. The Spanish saw nothing to lose and backed Columbus for his journey across the sea. Certainly, after finding an island with natives and returning from the new world he found little fame than he does today.

    Amerigo Vespucci is just as much a hero as Christopher Columbus.

    It gives schoolteachers and government workers a day off.

    Also, many Italian Americans consider Columbus to be a great guy.

    I wish that people would stop messing with Columbus Day. It's a great holiday in the middle of a October - the last of the good weather here. Maybe rename it if that makes people feel better.
