Don't know, don't care...unless I've got something special to do like doctor's appointments, shooting with  friend, having lunch with  friend, going to see something we haven't seen before (or maybe we have) with a friend, people watching with  friend, or solving all the world's problems with a friend, shopping with a friend....or just hanging out with a friend.

Happy Columbus Day!:FlagAm:

Columbus day is tomorrow. October 12th.

 

I have never agreed with this "move the holiday to Monday or Friday so we can have a three-day weekend" nonsense. Independence day is the 4th of July. Washington's birthday (not President's Day - that's stupid) is February 22nd. Armistice Day is November 11th. Decoration Day is May 30th.

 

The only holidays that should have a fluctuating date are Easter and Thanksgiving.

In more and more places October 12 is no longer Columbus Day it is Indigenous People's Day.  The chruch that Washington attended has taken down a plaque noting his membership in that chruch.

Except in Hawaii where is is Discoverer's Day. Not as much shuts down there because of it, but the Federal holiday still applies to certain government functions.

There's historical artifacts that substantiate the Norse were here way before Columbus. And there are artifacts indicating the Chinese/Asians were along our west coast, way, way before anyone. The Italians get all bothered about this. 

 

We didn't become the "America's" until Amerigo Vespucci got involved in the early 1500's. So Columbus didn't discover America!

Columbus discovered the New World which led to the founding of America!

So it should be the 1492 project rather than the 1619 project.

Don't know, don't care.  The only time I notice what day it might be is on Sunday and that is because some stores are closed or shut early.  Other than that a day is a day.

Mondays are the first day of my Weekend.  Yep.  I are retired.

 

I personally celebrate October 12th as my Late Mother's Birthday.

As long as you get up before you take a leak, you are doing good. It's when you do it in the reverse order that your day is not going to go well.
