Child singingIn Fourteen Hundred and Ninety Two. Do you remember the song we sang as children recognizing the discovery of the Americas by Christopher Columbus?

In fourteen hundred and ninety two

Columbus sailed the ocean blue

He sailed and sailed and sailed

To find this land for me and you.

Sailed the ocean blueDid you know the actual established holiday is October 12th?

Did you know that Columbus Day is also celebrated in some Central American and South American countries?

And did you know it is also celebrated in Spain, the country that Christopher Columbus sailed his ships from to the Americas?

Happy Columbus Day unless you are in Hawaii, Alaska or South Dakota because they don’t celebrate Columbus Day at all. A couple of those states have established alternative days of recognition.

In Fourteen Hundred and Ninety Two. Yes, that was the year, 1492.

Hi Debbie, I did remember that October 12 was the originally date, but it was changed to Mondays, like so many other of our holidays. Although the schools and banks are closed, it just another day in the life of a Realtor. Have a Great Day!

Debbie, I, too, can remember the song from early school days, but I forgot that the original day was 12th not the 8th.  Something gets lost when it's just part of long weekend for banks, gov't workers and maybe schools.

Thanks for the reminder.
