All You Need to Know for Columbus Day Travel

Why is Columbus Day Celebrated?

Christopher Columbus was an Italian explorer. He was a native of Genoa, Italy. However, King Ferdinand and Queen Isabella of Spain were the ones to finance most of his explorations. The Italian Americans had over the years decided to honor his achievements. It was in New York City that the 300th anniversary of Christopher Columbus landing was celebrated in 1792.

A century later the 400th anniversary was celebrated throughout the United States through a presidential proclamation in 1892 by President Benjamin Harrison. The later half of the 19th century saw Columbus Day being celebrated by a large number of Italian Americans in many cities.

Finally, Columbus Day was declared a national holiday in 1937 by presidential proclamation.

The Columbus Day holiday initially began as a small celebration and later on became a national day of commemoration to honor the explorer who played a key role in changing the course of world history through his discovery. It was first in 1866 that the Italian American community in New York City resolved to dedicate a day of celebration for their ancestors. Afterward, the Italian Americans throughout the country started to organize parades, banquets, and festivals to honor Columbus and thus October 12 was officially proclaimed to be Columbus Day, and the holiday is being celebrated on the second Monday of each October since 1971.
