As of 1971, Columbus Day has been celebrated as a legal federal holiday and is often marked by parades.
Some people view Columbus as a conquerer, choosing instead to celebrate Indigenous Peoples Day in its place. We can use Columbus Day to celebrate the coming together of people from all different heritages to make one place their home.
It’s no coincidence that Columbus Day speaks to exploring new lands and making your life in a new place. However you celebrated yesterday, if at all, we’d like to extend our wishes for a Happy Columbus Day and Happy Indigenous Peoples Day to all of our friends and clients!
