Is anyone doing anything for Columbus Day? Are your kids out of school on Monday?

I know that for some Columbus Day is controversial. Is it for you? Are you doing anything for Columbus Day? Are your kids out of school on Monday?


I am taking my son to see the replicas of the Pinta and Nina. They will be in a town near us for the next week or so. For those who have not seen them, they are floating museums that go to different ports.

My son's school has Monday off for Fall Break.

  • My daughter's school doesn't give Columbus Day as a holiday, but she'll have one half day and one full day off during that week for parent/teacher conferences anyway. We don't usually do anything for Columbus Day, but the replicas of the Nina and Pinta sound fascinating.

    I have a friend whose family has two old clunker cars. She calls them the Nina and the Pinta.

  • They had today and Monday off. We will go it six flags Monday but nothing to celebrate Columbus Day just for a fun girls day off.

  • My child has school & hubby and I both have to work. The only thing I celebrate about that day is since mail isn't being delivered, I won't get any bills that day! lol ;p
