Columbus Day 2022: Date, History and Significance


Columbus Day is a national holiday in the United States that commemorates the arrival of Christopher Columbus in the Americas in 1492.

It is observed on the second Monday in October, and many Americans take the day off from work or school to celebrate.

In recent years, some have called for the holiday to be
renamed Indigenous Peoples’ Day and for it to be used
as an opportunity to celebrate the contributions of Native Americans to American society.
