1980 Events

January 13, 2009

I was only six in 1980, so I didn't pay too much attention to the events of that year. I was really surprised by some of the events, births, and deaths of the first year of the decade, especially the start of Post-It Notes!


You can even make yourself a cool Post-It Notes holder, like I did, from Jen Tapler Designs' super easy tutorial.


Events:
  • Ronald Reagan is elected President.
  • Post-It Notes are sold.
  • CNN is first all news network.
  • Mt. Saint Helens erupts, killing 60 people.
  • Bill Gates licenses MS-DOS to IBM.
  • US hockey team defeats Russia in the Winter Olympics.

Births:
  • Alicia Keys
  • Christina Ricci
  • Jessica Simpson
  • Macaulay Caulkin
  • Christina Aguillera
  • Jake Gyllenhall

Deaths: 
  • John Lennon
  • Colonel Sanders (KFC)
  • Mae West
  • John Bonham (Led Zepplin)
  • Bill "Buckwheat" Thomas
  • Peter Sellers
