克里斯多福.哥伦布看到陆地,14921012

美国第一次庆祝哥伦布日的活动,在1792年的1012日,这距离哥伦布发现新大陆已经有三百年的时间;但在其后的一百年中,这一天依旧不是正式的假日。纪念日是纪念特殊事件的日子,如哥伦布日,或知名人物的生日,像是马丁路德日。成为国家假日可以帮助我们记得这些人对于我们国家的特殊贡献。


The first Columbus Day celebration in the United States took place on October 12, 1792--300 years after his first discovery--but it still wasn't an official holiday for another 100 years. Days commemorating special events like Columbus Day or birthdays of famous leaders, like Martin Luther King Jr., become national holidays and help us remember the important contributions these individuals made to our country.
