Columbus Day (October 11, 2010) honors Italian explorer, Christopher Columbus, whose three fabled ships commissioned by Queen Isabella of Spain landed on American shores in 1492. The momentous voyage, celebrated since colonial times as the birth of a New World, became an official federal holiday in 1934. The observance of Columbus Day offers an opportunity to celebrate the immigration of settlers to America. The mass immigration of people from all over the world has helped the United States of America become one of the most ethnically diverse populations in the world.
