  • The history of Columbus Day - October 9

    Columbus Day celebrates the landing of Christopher Columbus in the New World in 1492. Though it did not become an official holiday in the United States until 1937, Columbus Day was celebrated in various places throughout the country as early as the 1700s.

    Established as a federal holiday in 1937, Columbus Day commemorates the explorer’s arrival in the New World on October 12, 1492. Though Italian, Columbus had difficulty securing financial support for his exploration, ultimately being backed by King Ferdinand and Queen Isabella of Spain.
