Happy Holiday

To some, today is Columbus Day. In some places, school is out and it’s 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.

One bark on “Happy Holiday

  1. I truly feel we (as a country) need to re-visit C.D. as a holiday. I read the long history & don’t feel it is at all “American” if you will. We need to look at some Native American heroes & get something going on to represent America. Being as THEY were here LONG before CC. Problem, they (NA) don’t have many, loud voices. SHAME!!
