Columbus Day is a national holiday in many countries of the Americas and elsewhere, which officially celebrates the anniversary of Christopher Columbus’s arrival in the Americas.Today we celebrate Columbus Day for what it accurately is. Columbus did discover the existence of the New World for the Europeans who until then, believed the world was flat and ended somewhere in the Atlantic. Some key fact below:

• Columbus discovered America in 1942
• He travelled with three ships: the Nina, the Pinta and the Santa Maria
• Columbus was Italian, he could not acquire funding in Italy; King Ferdinand and Queen Isabella of Spain provided the funding.
• Columbus did not land on the U.S. mainland; he landed on an island in the Caribbean. While many believe he landed in San Salvador, there is still debate on which island he originally landed.
