You know, Columbus Day was a whole lot cooler when I was a kid. We got to do stuff for school like color pictures of Columbus and his ships, read books about his voyage, or make little models of the Nina, Pinta and Santa Maria, depending on how old we were. It was a special day, a mark on the calendar that meant a break from the ordinary autumn education routine.
Now, it's like, "Oh, Columbus Day. No mail." End of story.
Hmph. Wonder if there are any downloadable pictures of Columbus and his ships I could print up and color?
