columbus day

This has got to be the worst holiday for a parent. Try explaining to your kid that, on this day, we're supposed to honor a guy who royally screwed up on the job he was commissioned, lied about it, occupied colonized the rightful landowners, didn't even get there first, and wound up being a national hero deserving of his own holiday. With schools, banks, and post offices closing and all.

That, and not having appropriate arts and crafts (or gifts) to distract them with, so they freakin' stop asking you any more questions about the topic.

My contribution for the day? Copy and pasting someone else's work  :)


What are you doing on Columbus day?

I agree with you wholeheartedly. If you're not able to get away for the three-day weekend, then you're stuck with a kid who feels like he's on vacation but still has homework for Tuesday!
