Columbus Day Should be Celebrated

Evelyn Castro

Evidence 1

Columbus Day should be celebrated because we have more than 500 years celebrating it. Columbus day is one of the oldest holidays in America. Christopher Columbus is known for being a great man for example he supported many scientists. Everyone knows that Columbus discovered America on his voyage and that is what he is mainly known for. There is also a lot of monuments of Columbus in America. For instance there is one in New York. This shows how America has admired Columbus ever since his voyage.

Evidence 2

We should continue celebrating Columbus day because the Pledge of Allegiance was written in honor of the 400th anniversary of his voyage. That year the president declared Columbus day an official holiday. It has been a tradition ever since this was declared a holiday. Everyone enjoys celebrating Columbus day because we get the day off. We should all remember the great accomplishments that Columbus did.
