Columbus Day honors the explorer Christopher Columbus, who first landed in the New World on October 12, 1492. While Columbus’s nationality has never been positively identified, many believe he was of Italian descent, and throughout the nineteenth century, Italian-Americans held celebrations in cities across the United States to honor his memory. In 1937, President Franklin D. Roosevelt proclaimed October 12 Columbus Day. President Richard Nixon later declared Columbus Day a national holiday to be observed the second Monday of each October.

As many of us may have learned in elementary school, Christopher Columbus was the Italian navigator who sailed with Spanish ships and landed in a land inhabited by native Americans which he mistakenly called Indians due to his believing that he had reached India. This conclusion did change the course of history.

So, what’s open and what’s closed today? It’s an official federal government holiday, banks and some schools are closed, no mail delivery, but the stock market is open.

It is a normal workday here at Totally Kids fun furniture & toys – please stop in!
