Hear, hear. I'm not Italian but was married to one and have an Italian last name. Didn't Columbus sail under the Spanish flag, anyway?

In my years in Philadelphia I've seen the Columbus Day Parade shrink. It used to close all of South Broad Street. Now it's just down in South Philadelphia, which still has a number of Italian neighborhoods. It's as though it's become an Italian thing.

Which seems fine. In Minnesota they have a holiday called St. Urho's Day. It's not a legal holiday, but it kind of competes with St. Patrick's Day. It commemorates some Scandinavian guy, and not being Scandinavian I can't get too into it. It's not widely celebrated, anyway -- it's not like everybody runs out and eats lutefisk and drinks Aquavit on SUD.

Apparently St. Urho's Day has something in common with International Talk Like a Pirate Day.

I'm hearing a lot of Italians  say that it's "their day" to celebrate their heritage.

I want to say that if it were true, it  would be "Italian" day, not Columbus Day.

There is a separate festival for that here. It centers in and around our famous Italian Market.

(Which seems to be rapidly becoming more Asian than Italian.)

I never paid it much attention one way or another. It's not even a big deal with actual festivities or anything -- just something I'd heard about over the years. When I wrote the previous post, I wasn't even sure how to spell it.

Yes, in this area there is an annual San Gennaro festival.
