On the second Monday of October, which is in 2018 the 08th of October, Columbus Day is celebrated in the USA. Columbus Day is about the lucky discovery of the American continent by Christoph Columbus in 1492. That is no day off for US-Americans, but they celebrate the beginning of their country's history anyway.
We have placed a detailed description of this event on this page: Columbus Day 2017. For further information please stop by there!
