Happy Columbus Day!
If you're in the USA it's Columbus Day and the banks, post office and many businesses are closed. The day celebrates the event in 1492 when Columbus indeed sailed the ocean blue. But many think it was Leif that discovered America!
Happy Leif Erikson Day!
Tomorrow is is a day that honors Leif Erikson. Columbus didn't reach the New World until 1492, 500 years after Leif Erikson's arrival in 1001 AD.He reputedly landed on the east coast of Canada.
Happy Canadian Thanksgiving Day!
Speaking of Canada, it's Thanksgiving Day! If you're in Canada, Happy Thanksgiving. If you're in the U.S., you need to wait 45 days. If you're somewhere else, I'm not sure.
Happy Cephalopod Awareness Day!
Let me be the first to wish you a happy International Cephalopod Awareness Day. It is a day to celebrate cephalopods. Neither Columbus or Leif Erikson may have made it to the New World without Cephalopds. So dance like an octopus and remember your tentacled friends.
So much to celebrate these days!
