Oh Joy! Columbus Day

Today is Columbus Day. Did you even realize when you woke up this morning that it was a holiday?

I have so many wonderful memories of Columbus Days from my past.

Oh wait. No. I only have one.

I remember one of my elementary school teachers using chalk (I believe) to outline the sizes of the Nina, Pinta and Santa Maria in the courtyard outside and then having all of the classes walk outside and stand inside “the boats.”

They were tiny.

A few people got seasick.

It was memorable.

What a nifty holiday that honors an Italian, sailing under the Spanish flag who thought he was sailing to India, but instead landed in the Bahamas.

Wow. What a holiday.

I almost forgot we even had one today. I’m counting down to HALLOWEEN, thank you very much.
