Christopher Columbus Day Closings Banks and Malls Holiday 2010

October 12, 2010 by · Leave a Comment 

In 1492, Christopher Columbus discovered America!  Although historians and other people disagree because he didn’t really “discover” it,  he just discovered it in Europe’s perspective.  On this day, he also realized that the world is bigger than he thought it was.

Anyway, that was just a little history about Christopher Columbus so that you know why we celebrate the Columbus Day Holiday every year.  It’s time for party and celebration and vacation for some folks who will be out of the office.

People are of course asking, “Are banks open on Columbus day?” “Is there mail on Columbus day?” “Is Columbus day a Federal Holiday?”
