Many of you have the day off today thanks in part to Christopher Columbus' journey in 1492, but today we want to ask whether today's holiday should be shared with other explorers in human history.
That's what one petition on the White House website is asking President Obama to do, citing the president's words praising Neil Armstrong after his death earlier this year.
What do you think? Should Columbus and Armstrong be viewed as equals in a holiday that celebrates human exploration? Should Armstrong, and other explorers get separate holidays of their own?
Or should Columbus Day remain the same, or for that matter, should Columbus not get a holiday due to claims of his legacy on Native American populations and actions after his voyages that led to his dismissal as governor of Hispaniola and arrest in 1500?
Tell us what you think in the comments.
