It's the day we celebrate yet another guy who refused to stop and ask for directions.

And if you're like me, you're wondering what's open and what's not.

So here's a rundown:

Courts are closed.

Public schools have the option to close.

Banks also have the option to close.

Post offices are closed.

The stock market is open.

Enjoy your day as we once again celebrate an explorer who, rather than admit he was not in the East Indies, called the inhabitants of the lands he really visited "Indians" and inspired research into the psychological malady known as "denial".

Happy Columbus Day! ;-)
