Happy Columbus Day! Twitter Mocks National Holiday

Happy Columbus Day! Maybe… Millions of Americans around the country are thankful to have a day off of work today but some aren’t too happy about the reason. The hashtag #HappyColumbusDay has been trending all morning but most of the messages aren’t celebrating the famous explorer.

Everyone knows that Christopher Columbus sailed the oceans blue in 1492 but did he really discover America? How can you discover a place that was already inhabited by millions of people?

Columbus Day may still be a national holiday but several states have decided to stop celebrating the famous explorer. Seattle, for instance, recently decided to rename the holiday Indigenous Peoples Day.

What do you think about Columbus Day? Is it time to abolish the holiday in favor for something like Indigenous Peoples Day?
