  • Not I. Columbus didn't even discover America. What a thing to celebrate anyway.

  • glad to hear it, Night. I was just listening to the accounts of some of his men and to say I was sickened and saddened doesn't even begin to cover it.

  • I'm going to be honest I never really thought about it. We don't "celebrate" it but I've never had any ill feelings toward it.

  • Where do you get this supposed information? From eyewittnesses? If you are going to make a statement like that BACK IT UP.

  • Absolutely not. My children are not allowed to attend any sort of Columbus day parades and any other sort of celebrations of that murderer.

  • I don't celebrate it any particular way but I enjoy getting to sleep in because the kids don't have school. Chicago has a parade downtown (down Columbus Ave) which is a big deal to the Italians in town in the same way that St. Patrick's day is a big deal to the Irish.

  • Celebrating Columbus Day is like celebrating the day slaves from African first touched down on American soil. Disgusting. Why are school children still being lied to? Why won't someone stop this madness?
