Does anybody even know when Columbus Day is, except on Columbus Day (and only because they tried to go the post office or the bank )? I'm glad you "discovered" America, etc., but I was planning to register my car today and now I can't.
This has got to be one of the stupidest holidays ever, when we celebrate that some person from the distant past did something which he didn't, strictly speaking, do. I guess a lot of holidays fall into that category. Christmas, for instance.
