Columbus Day every year takes place on a Monday in October, and while a lot of us might know it as Columbus Day (that day in 1492 when Christopher Columbus sailed the ocean blue) it is also now known as Indigenous Persons Day. So what is a popular thing to do Mondays in the Hudson Valley? You might be thinking about something else, let's keep it professional or clean here.

Depending on where you live, it could be your trash pick up day. So sometime this weekend you might find yourself asking, 'Do I need to put the trashcans out tonight?
