Columbus Day

So Columbus Day was this week. Government employees got off work. But why? Columbus didn't even discover America. He discovered the Bahamas and Cuba. Right? And he thought it was India or something.

To find a parallel in another field, that's like some guy trying to design an airplane a long time ago that would fly into space. Instead of doing that, it actually goes underwater and successfully becomes the first submarine. And then years later, the guy gets celebrated by the dental industry for inventing the toothbrush. How does this make sense? I mean, yeah, he invented the submarine... but by accident, and what does this have to do with toothbrushes anyway?
