Columbus Day laughter at the library

I was informed by a sign at the library that on Monday we will be observing two holidays in stead of Columbus day.
1) Italian Heritage Day
2) Indigenous Peoples' Day

personally, I prefer:

"We're Going To Enslave You, Steal Your Gold, Kill You With Diseases And Then Have a Party About It Day."

Why not just call it October Monday Off Day?

My Credit Union, in a list of their holiday closures, refers to Monday as "Federal Holiday". All the other holidays are listed by their traditional names. Avoiding any controversy, no doubt.

In New England it's "Let's go look at the leaves day."

Cute how the two holiday names celebrate both immigrants and well, “originals.”

Just call it Melting Pot Day.

I just read that some Italian-Americans with southern Italy roots feel that Columbus was a de facto Spaniard, and that the Spanish colonized southern Italy. Ergo, they are also against Columbus on the basis of colonization and subjugation of their ancestors.
