Sunday January 01, 1984, NewYear’s Day

US date format: 1/1/1984, UK date format: 1/1/1984

It was Sunday, under the sign of Capricorn (see birth chart on January 1, 1984). The US president was Ronald Reagan (Republican), the UK Prime Minister was Margaret Thatcher (Conservative), Pope St John Paul II was leading the Catholic Church. Famous people born on this day include Alex McKenna and Sayali Bhagat. In that special week of January people in US were listening to Like A Virgin by Madonna. Blue Thunder, directed by John Badham, was one of the most viewed movies released in 1984 while The Weaker Vessel by Antonia Fraser was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Fynbos. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Cosmic Cruiser or All or Nothing.
But much more happened that day: find out below..
