These Hilarious Columbus Day Memes Will Make Your Day

It's Columbus Day! You know that holiday we celebrate in honor of the first man to discover America, even though Columbus was not, in fact, the first European to step foot on North American soil. Nor was he the first human being to step foot on American soil, but who doesn't love a three day weekend or an Italian pride parade?

Christopher Columbus may have sailed the ocean blue in fourteen-hundred-ninety-two, ultimately receiving a national holiday in his honor, but there's been ongoing debate over whether or not the holiday is socially insensitive or worth celebrating.

Columbus Day may be historically incorrect and a wee bit out of touch, but that doesn't mean we can't have a little fun with it. What better way to celebrate the holiday than with a little humor?

Check out these hilarious memes in honor of Columbus Day and tell us your favorite one-- once you've finished laughing!
