HAPPY COLUMBUS DAY! (Celebrated Monday)

Yesterday was the real Columbus Day.

Somehow, in order to lighten the workload on ourselves, we have decided to move it, along with most other holidays, to Monday, regardless of the real date we're celebrating.

I want to suggest that doing so diminishes the perceived significance of the purpose of the holiday and focuses too much on the "Day Off" aspect of it (long weekends, you know).

It also allows us to rewrite history with almost no challenge...which rewriting is regularly taking place.

I leave you with this quote:

"No one should be afraid to take on any enterprise in the name of our Savior if it is right and the purpose for His holy service." Christopher Columbus

Thanks for stopping by my blog. Good post. It is sad that we rewrite history.

I agree.....I think it does diminish the signifigance of it and we certainly can't afford that. When all kids know of Columbus Day is that they get off, there is a serious problem!

Columbus was a true Christian hero that changed history for the good. At my college CSUS Columbus day has been replaced by Indigenous awareness day, typical for a left wing college.
