Columbus Day/Canadian Thanksgiving (2nd Monday in October)

Today, the second Monday in October is a big day in North America...

In the U.S. we celebrate Columbus Day...

Of course, I didn't realize it was Columbus Day as I chose to run some errands today, such as going to the Post Office in the hopes of overnighting a package and going to the bank to make a deposit, but to no avail as the sign on both doors read:  Closed in Observance of Columbus Day.  Just my luck, eh?

Anyway, have a Happy Columbus Day!

And if you're up north across the border, have a Blessed Thanksgiving Day!
