Columbus Day Weather History Reports

This holiday commemorates Christopher Columbus’s first landing in the
Americas on October 12, 1492. Beginning in the late 19th century,
Italian-Americans began to honor the day as a celebration of their
heritage, as Columbus is widely believed to be of Italian origin. In 1937,
President Franklin D. Roosevelt proclaimed the federal holiday.
