DID YOU KNOW...
Before the advent of the Internet, stock quotes were printed by telegraph machines on continuous paper ribbon known as ticker tape.
In 1886, New Yorkers became the first to use the tape as confetti during an impromptu celebration of the dedication of the Statue of Liberty, inventing what would come to be known as a "ticker-tape parade." Since then, ticker-tape parades have been used to greet dignitaries, honor war heroes, and fete sports teams.
