It was Sunday, under the sign of Capricorn (see planets position on January 1, 2006). The US president was George W. Bush (Republican). In that special week of January people in US were listening to Don't Forget About Us by Mariah Carey. In UK Jailhouse Rock by Elvis Presley was in the top 5 hits. Grandma's Boy, directed by Nicholaus Goossen, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2006 while Teacher Man by Frank McCourt was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching The Book of Daniel. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Raving Rabbids or Asphalt 3: Street Rules.
