Happy Holiday

To some, today is Columbus Day.  In some places, school is out and it’s a holiday.  (It’s a federal holiday, too, but with the shutdown going on, every day is a holiday.)  Not in Miami-Dade County, though, which means I’m at work, and to some people, celebrating the arrival of Christopher Columbus is seen as not necessarily a good thing.

In Canada, it’s Thanksgiving Day.  That means they get a six-week jump on Christmas shopping.  I am sure they are thrilled to be inundated with jingling bells and heralding angels before the leaves are off the maples.

Anyway, enjoy the holiday if you celebrate it.
