It was Tuesday, under the sign of Sagittarius (see birth chart on December 2, 1997). The US president was Bill Clinton (Democrat). In that special week of December people in US were listening to Something About The Way You Look Tonight by Elton John. Life Is Beautiful, directed by Roberto Benigni, was one of the most viewed movies released in 1997 while The Matarese Countdown by Robert Ludlum was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Bed & Breakfast. If you liked videogames you were probably playing TOCA Touring Car Championship or Dungeon Keeper.
