7 Things That Occurred Throughout History On The 1st Day Of The Year

404 Last gladiator competition in Rome [A little bit less barbarism in the world?]

1853 First fire engine (horse-drawn) in US enters service [Those horses must have ran out fast and quick]

1905- 9 hour work day for diamond miners [nice if they got a diamond for each holiday on the least a few when retiring] 

1913 Post office begins parcel post deliveries

1928 1st US air-conditioned office building opens, San Antonio [What a cool place to work!]

1962 Beatles' Decca audition is unsuccessful [Just think that could have been the end of the Beatles if they got discouraged and gave up. Maybe a key to success try it again and yet again...maybe you'll get a breakthrough!]

1985 - The Internet's Domain Name System is created. [Probably the time when squatters began sitting on names they'd know a company would want]
