History Of Columbus Day

Many countries in North & South America celebrate Columbus Day. Christopher Columbus received credit for finding North America on October 12, 1492. This holiday has been celebrated unofficially since the 18th century, but it became a federal holiday of the Unite Sates of America in 1937. Columbus Day commemorates the day that Christopher Columbus found North & South America.

How I Will Celebrate

I am going to celebrate by not having school on that day and go over Columbus's history and how he found North America. Also I will celebrate it by sleeping in, the reason I can do this is because Christopher Columbus discovered North & South America.
