October 12th is the day in which the Americas observe Columbus Day, otherwise known as the Day of the Americas or Pan American Day.
Of all the irony in holidays,from mammals laying eggs,to flying reindeer the Americas celebrating Columbus is one of my favorites.

From wikipedia
"There is increasing modern scientific evidence that this voyage also brought syphilis back from the New World. Many of the crew members who served on this voyage later joined the army of King Charles VIII in his invasion of Italy in 1495 resulting in the spreading of the disease across Europe and as many as 5 million deaths.[22][23]

So it wasn't just a oneway street they got f*&%ed to.
