We're All So Over "Columbus Day" And We're Going To Rename It

We're so over Columbus.

Posted on

Calling it "Columbus Day" is so last century. In the past year, eight more cities abolished calling the holiday by that name.

Portland and Albuquerque are among the cities now calling it "Indigenous People's Day". San Francisco has been calling the holiday "Italian Heritage Day" for over a decade.

From Columbus' diary of his first trip to the Americas. Should we celebrate #ColumbusDay or #IndigenousPeoplesDay?

  1. But what do you think? What should Columbus Day be called?
