December brings us the Holiday season around the world. International Day of Person with Disabilities occurs December 3rd, with the theme of removing barriers to create an inclusive and accessible society for all. Texas became the 28th state in December 1845, and the phonograph was invented by Thomas Edison in December 1877. And, in the words of Helen H Moore, “Every year at just this time, in cold and dark December, families around the world all gather to remember, with presents and with parties, with feasting and with fun, customs and traditions, for people old and young.” Happy Holidays from the Rackspace Startup Program!
