Wishing you a Happy and Relaxing Columbus Day!...

Real Estate Agent with Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices 01238708

 Many people all over the Globe are not familiar with ‘Columbus Day’. Reason being, it is a U.S. holiday that commemorates the landing of Christopher Columbus in the Americas in 1492, and Columbus Day 2021 occurs on Monday, October 11.

So, someone who came to the United States from a Communist Hungary, I always loved celebrating Columbus Day. After all, it is the holiday honoring Columbus’ achievements  coming from Europe to the United States.


Many people are not aware that Columbus Day was unofficially celebrated in several cities and states as early as the 18th century but did not become a federal holiday until 1937.

So with this historical Trivia wishing you a Happy Columbus Day!

 Wishing you a safe and healthy life and I look forward to your comments.

Love this, Endre... I'm personally so sick of revisionist history that is trying to totally eliminate Columbus Day from our consciousness. One of my best memories from childhood (and even adulthood) was watching the Colubus Day Parade go down Fifth Avenue in NYC.

Good morning Endre. Let the one among us without sin cast the first stone. Columbus was not a saint but he was a hero. As for the stone throwers, beware you may be next. Enjoy your day.

Hello Endre - I definitely remember learning the Columbus story in school. And the familiar saying about 1492 as well as the three ships.  Other things were learned too in time.  Sometimes, history is like that.  For some.

Enjoy your Columbus Day (our Thanksgiving Day!)   If people cannot appreciate the bravery and ingenuity of this man, I have no patience for them.  What he did was the equivilent of the first space flight to the moon, but more dangerous and time consuming too.

Endre there is a wacky effort to change Columbus Day to Indigenous Peoples Day.  It will always be Columbus Day to me no matter what the WOKE nuts decide to call it.

Hello Endre.  That is quite the flag!  There is no missing that bad boy in your driveway.  Nice.  I am always amazed at the courage it took to travel across uncharted waters, to unknown, actually disbelieved, lands.  This was one incredible accomplishment.  These gents had them hanging around their ankles.  Take care Endre.  Mark
