    55 Cities have elected to call it "Indigenous Peoples Day" as opposed to "Columbus Day" here in the States....

    Happy Columbus Day! I love a three day weekend in October.

    I also want to wish my friends up north a happy Thanksgiving! I, for one, am thankful to have a place like hf to discuss hockey and have fun with it. We may root for different teams, but you make it fun and interesting.

    Enjoy your day, everyone.

    That it’s not a separate paid holiday from Columbus Day. If we had TWO long weekends in October, that would be really boss.

    Some people don't like change, but naming after a guy that never stepped foot on North American soil seems rather odd to me.

    Fixed that. It’s early, I just got up, and “Thanksgiving” made me think “November”.

    Sorry for the error.

    I mean it’s also odd to name it after a guy that commuted genocide on the indigenous people living here.

    Technically he committed the genocide in Central America, South America and the Caribbean. Can't commit genocide in a place you have never been ;)

    But seriously, I agree 100%.

    I think it depends on the industry you are in. If you are in an industry where they are open 365 days a year, yeah you will probably have to work. If you are in an industry that closes weekends, you probably won't have to work.
