Celebrate Columbus Day with us!
Many countries in the New World and elsewhere celebrate the anniversary of Christopher Columbus's arrival in the Americas, which occurred on October 12, 1492, as an official holiday. The event is celebrated as Columbus Day in the United States, as Día de la Raza in many countries in the Americas, as Discovery Day in the Bahamas, as Día de la Hispanidad and Fiesta Nacional in Spain and as Día de las Américas (Day of the Americas) in Uruguay. The first official, regular Columbus Day holiday was proclaimed by Colorado governor Jesse F. McDonald in 1905 and made a statutory holiday in 1907. In April 1934, as a result of lobbying by the Knights of Columbus, Congress and President Franklin Delano Roosevelt made October 12 a federal holiday under the name Columbus Day.
And though the disputes on the fact who was the first to discover America are still acute, hardly there is anyone to doubt that Christopher Columbus played a significant part in the human history. That’s why there is no surprise that more and more game developers make him either the hero of the games or exploit his name. While Columbus: Ghost of the Mystery Stone is holding the top lines in our ratings, a new one by cerasus.media was released. In Ancient Spirits: Columbus' Legacy you’re not supposed to wonder as Columbus whose ship crashed on the mystic island, but to explore the ship of the pioneer that is over 500 years-old but still looks like it was abandoned only yesterday.
Don’t know the traditions of the Columbus Day? Make your own one – just play a game that is connected with the discoverer!
