Columbus Day, October 9
Christopher Columbus landed in Bahamas, part of the Americas, on October 12th, 1494. Columbus Day is meant to celebrate this arrival. Christopher Columbus was an Italian sailor, born in Genoa, Italy in 1451. He sailed with three ships and 90 crew members on the voyage that landed him in the Bahamas. Unofficially, Columbus Day has been celebrated in the U.S. since the late 1700s, but did not become an official holiday until 1906, when it became state holiday in Colorado. It became a federal holiday in 1934. In 1971 it became a fixed holiday, celebrated on the second Monday in October. Columbus Day is also celebrated in different countries including: Latin America, the Bahamas, Spain, Argentina, Belize and Uruguay. These countries have different names for the holiday but they all celebrate the same event.
