YSK Columbus Day started in 1866 as a celebration of Italian heritage. Being Columbus was the most famous Italian associated with the Americas.

Perhaps due to the large influx of Irish into New York during the 1850’s and their observation of St. Patrick’s day as culturally significant. Italian Americans responded with their own day to celebrate their unique heritage. Columbus being a much bigger deal then little ol’ (mostly mythical) St. Patrick and all.
