I insist on calling it Genocide Day. In South Dakota, they now call it Native American Day. Those who are delusional and “patriotic” enough (including the U.S. Government) to celebrate a day in honor of a criminal and genocide-minded asshole who didn’t even actually “discover” America call it Columbus Day.
Apparently, up to 17 states do not celebrate Columbus Day (a number I have found from numerous sources, but all lack a citation). If you’d like to learn more about why we ought to get rid of this “national holiday,” check out the Transform Columbus Day Alliance.
To the few of you who actually get a day off, enjoy it. And to everyone else, have fun not being able to get into the bank or post office.
