Fact of the Day: Christmas Ship

Christopher Columbus' ship the Santa Maria sank on Christmas Day. On the night of Christmas Eve, Columbus went to sleep, and somebody let a boy steer the ship. Without a proper person to steer the ship, it crashed into the sandbank when water currents turned the ship that way.
