History Lessons by Bill Petro

Bill Petro worked for Sun for 11 years in a senior marketing position. He is now with EMC in similar role. However, I only knew him thru a series of automated e-mail notes I get from time to time throughout the year. He has a passion for researching and writing short historical narratives on several topics. One topic that I find interesting is a series called "History of the Holidays". You can sign up so that you get these delivered to your in-box just in time for the specific holiday. Or, you can go here and simply read them on-demand: http://www.billpetro.com/HolidayHistory/
