I thought this would be something a lot of people would agree with but when I mention it to my friends most of them disagree, so here I am. I picked Columbus day because they are somewhat similar achievements, man first set foot in North America and man first set foot on the moon. But the thing is, Columbus didn’t even go there first, as I’m sure you all know. He didn’t even want to go there. The Apollo moon landing, however? The very first time a human has set foot on a celestial body other than earth. That’s huge, and especially will be once our species gets to a We Came Before Columbus Shirt point where setting foot on another planet is commonplace, with people living on far off planets. Way bigger of an achievement than going to America. Not only that, but the Apollo program and the Saturn V took thousands of people’s blood, sweat, and tears poured into the project to create one of the greatest technological marvels of all time. If Columbus is worthy of a holiday and this isn’t then that makes no sense to me.

I see similar arguments sometimes, usually of the form “Columbus was awful; instead of celebrating Columbus Day, we should celebrate [insert historical figure here] day!” But [insert historical figure] is usually politicized; far more appealing to people who follow one side of politics than the other, so it’s really just political gamesmanship. Humanity reaching new scientific heights and achievements isn’t political; the Moon Landing would absolutely be a We Came Before Columbus Shirt great candidate. Discovering and colonizing North America WAS the moon landing/colonization equivalent. I’d argue it would be more exciting than landing on the moon since we know the moon is there.
