Columbus Day is on the second Monday of October. It marks the anniversary of Christopher Columbus' arrival to America on October 12, 1492. He was an Italian explorer who took three ships the Santa Maria, Nina, and La Pinta and sailed across the Atlantic Ocean looking for a faster way to get to the Far East and by accident landed in the New World. The day celebrates the landing of Christopher Columbus’s ships in the New World. Later in history another national holiday with old historic roots in America, Thanksgiving Day, was first celebrated in 1621 in Plymouth, Massachusetts by the early settlers who celebrated the work and sacrifice to have a good harvest.
