why are you guys so worried about having Columbus Day off when he didn't even discover America. The Indians did. Also its just one day so calm down in my opinion the banks shouldn't get the day off either. I mean what did they do to get the day off huh?

Technically Columbus did discover America, since he had not been here before and he named it. However the Indians were indigenous to the area but did no encompass every square inch. They were parts of land they did not even know existed. So quit being such a hater of anything American and give ole Columbus some credit.

Actually Columbus didn't discover America, the Norsemen had already been here long before he got lost and thought he was in India.
