When a Good Wind Blows

“Hinga-dinga-durgin” said SpongeBob Square Pants to his friends. He was celebrating Leif Ericson Day, an official holiday created to honor his hero Leif Ericson, the Norse Viking. Around 1001AD Leif Ericson took advantage of a mighty wind and setting sail from his hometown he discovered North America.
