Christopher Columbus discovered America in 1492.
Columbus Day first became an
official state holiday in Colorado in 1906,
and became a federal holiday in 1937.
As in the mainland U.S., Columbus Day
is a legal holiday in the
U.S. territory of Puerto Rico.
In the United States Virgin Islands,
the day is celebrated as
both Columbus Day and
"Puerto Rico Friendship Day."
God bless you!
Have a safe and Happy Columbus day!
The Lord bless thee, and keep thee:
The Lord make his face shine upon thee,
and be gracious unto thee:
The Lord lift up his countenance upon thee,
and give thee peace.
Numbers 6:24-26 (KJV)
