Happy New Year!

Wednesday, December 30th, 2009

2010It’s been an incredible year for all of us at PeopleFinders, and we hope 2009 was a prosperous and joyful time for you. A lot has happened since we launched this blog on May 29, 2009.

We’ve seen so many amazing events unfold over the year. We shared a collective feeling of bereavement at the loss of celebrities like Michael Jackson, Farah Fawcett and Patrick Swayze.  These beloved entertainers brought so much joy into our lives, and their unfortunate passing reminds of us how important it is to hold the people that we care about close. We are constantly reminded of just how unpredictable life can be.

Everywhere you look you see lights, decorations and people out shopping for gifts that they hope will bring joy to their friends and family members.

Happy Labor Day!

Tuesday, September 8th, 2009

laborOn the first Monday in September people all across the United States enjoy a little extra time away from their jobs as we celebrate Labor Day. It’s a great holiday to share with friends and family as we start to say farewell to the summer.

The origin of Labor Day goes back to the time of the American Industrial Revolution. It was first celebrated in New York City on September 5th, 1882 by members of the Central Labor Union. Workers took a day off to have a picnic and enjoy the fruits of their labors. They agreed to make this an annual event, and the following year the concept began to spread around the country. By 1894 it had gained so much attention that it was turned into a national holiday.
