Okay, so putting aside the fact that Columbus Day as we previously knew it is actually more of a fake USA federal holiday, or outdated, misleading, or however you want to say it — considering that the brutal explorer Columbus never set foot in North America — let’s just call some of these quotations historical and educational and literary. I’ve collected them for far too many years to trash them all now! Some places have renamed the holiday Discovery Day, Indigenous Peoples Day (what, no apostrophe‽), Native American Day, American Indian Heritage Day, etc. So let’s get whatever we can out of these quotes. You know what they say — love the words, hate the explorer.—tεᖇᖇ¡·g, October 2013 Columbus Day 2016 HD Wallpapers Images Happy Columbus Day parade Images regatta HD Wallpapers
