Columbus Day is a U.S. holiday that commemorates the landing of Christopher Columbus in the New World on October 12, 1492. It was unofficially celebrated in a number of cities and states as early as the 18th century but did not become a federal holiday until the 1937. For many, the holiday is a way of both honoring Columbus' achievements and celebrating Italian-American heritage. Throughout its history, Columbus Day and the man who inspired it have generated controversy, and many alternatives to the holiday have appeared in recent years.

The moment when you first
wake up in the morning
is the most wonderful of the
twenty-four hours.  No matter how
weary or dreary you may feel,
you possess the certainty that, during the
day that lies before you, absolutely anything may
happen.  And the fact that it  practically
always doesn't, matters not a jot.  The
possibility is always there.

~ Monica Baldwin

You will find as you look back upon your life
that the moments when you have really lived
are the moments when you have done things
in a spirit of love.

~Henry Drummond
