Today's Reason to Celebrate

October 13, 2014 is

Columbus Day

Celebrate Columbus Day! In 1492, Christopher Columbus set sail on a voyage to find a shorter trade route to Asia. He traveled west and accidentally landed in the Americas, spawning the era of European exploration in the New World.

The first celebration of his discovery did not take place until October 12, 1792—exactly 300 years after his landing. In 1937, President Franklin Roosevelt proclaimed Columbus Day a national holiday, observed each year on the second Monday of October.

Take a moment today to learn something new about Christopher Columbus and commemorate his voyage to the New World. Happy Columbus Day!
