We wish you a Happy long Weekend on this Columbus Day 2018!

“You can never cross the ocean unless you have the courage to lose sight of the shore.”

                                                                                         –     Christopher Columbus

Christopher Columbus, the son of a wool merchant, was born in Genoa, Italy, in about 1451 was an Italian explorer who stumbled upon the Americas and whose journeys marked the beginning of centuries of transatlantic colonization.  During his voyage, the boat sank, but the young Columbus floated to shore on a scrap of wood and made his way to Lisbon, where he studied mathematics, astronomy, cartography and navigation. He also began to hatch the plan that would change the world forever.

Today he is remembered as a daring and path-breaking explorer who transformed the New World, yet his actions also unleashed changes that would eventually devastate the native populations he and his fellow explorers encountered.

Columbus Day became a federal holiday in the United States in 1937 due to the decision of Congress and President Franklin Delano Roosevelt. Nowadays it is generally observed by the U.S. Postal Service, federal agencies, banks, most state government offices, most school districts and many businesses. Most states celebrate it as an official state holiday and close schools and other state services.

Columbus Day is celebrated on the second Monday in October, but up until 1970 it was celebrated on October 12 to commemorate Columbus’ arrival in the Americas which occurred on October 12, 1492. Since 1971 due to The Uniform Monday Holiday Act, the holiday’s date has been fixed to the second Monday in October. We wish you a long weekend and enjoy the best out of the Columbus Day holiday.
