Why do we celebrate Columbus Day in the United States? He did not, as far as I have read, ever even reach our country. Furthermore, the lands that he did reach were not unpopulated areas. They had native people living there already. How could Christopher Columbus discover a place that was not lost to all of the people who already called it home? If any ole person can just go around saying they are discovering places then we should all start doing that. I think I will go to Montana, stake a flag in the ground and give the post office a day off. Hey it worked for Columbus!
