There is a lot going on today and many options for social media posts. I am sure I missed a few. Don’t worry if you missed National Son’s or Daughter’s Day. There is always something to celebrate. Make each day count.
When I grew up in NY today was called Columbus Day. Fast forward to 2022, What holiday is this? Some say today is indigenous peoples day and others Columbus day. As a real estate professional, I guess this is a double holiday.
What I know for sure is that today is a Federal holiday . . . I guess the only double Federal holiday. There won’t be any mail delivery, that’s fine with me, I won’t see any bills or junk mail. It looks like everything else will be open but I don’t know for sure.
I was watching the Discovery Channel and it showed that the Vikings “discovered” America long before Christopher Columbus did. Why aren’t we celebrating them? Let’s have a triple holiday.
We also know that in 1492 there was no internet or telephones. Back then, just like today History was made and written by the winners, usually wealthy men.
I guess that saying is true; “History always repeats itself.”
