Should we keep celebrating Columbus Day? I think yes we should. Every Second Monday in October, we celebrate that we have a country that has been discovered and we are to be thankful for what we have. Some people say no its a bad idea to celebrate Columbus day. But I think yes we should.
One reason why I think we should celebrate Columbus day is that if Christopher Columbus didn't sail onto the Bahamas, we wouldn't even be living here. If he didn't, we wouldn't even know about the new world which we live on. Another reason, is that people say when he came he ruined the land by cutting down all the trees. But really, he didn't ruin it. Look at what is going on in the world now. Global warming and a oil spill. Yeah and he ruined our world. No he didn't we are ruining it more than he is. One more reason is that we have been celebrating this holiday since 1866. Why would we stop celebrating it after so many years of celebrating it. Also why would we stop celebrating it just cause the people who say we shouldn't doesn't mean we have to stop it. For those people you don't have to celebrate it but we want to.
Christopher Columbus has so many impacts on our world today. Some of us dont agree that he changed the world forever. Imagine if he didn't come. What would we do? Where would we be? Those are just some questions I want to know about Christopher Columbus. From honoring our world that we live in to honoring this day since 1866. I think we should celebrate this holiday. We are not going to stop just because others say we shouldnt.
