Happy Columbus Day From Judyth Piazza and TheSOP
Many countries in the New World and elsewhere celebrate the anniversary of Christopher Columbus`s arrival in the Americas, which occurred on October 12, 1492, as an official holiday.
The event is celebrated as Columbus Day in the United States, as DÃa de la Raza in many countries in Latin America, as Discovery Day in the Bahamas, as DÃa de la Hispanidad and Fiesta Nacional in Spain and as DÃa de las AmÃ©ricas (Day of the Americas) in Uruguay.
These holidays have been celebrated unofficially since the late 18th century, and officially in various areas since the early 20th century.
