US date format: 5/4/1996, UK date format: 4/5/1996

It was Saturday, under the sign of Taurus (see birth chart on May 4, 1996). The US president was Bill Clinton (Democrat), the UK Prime Minister was Sir John Major (Conservative), Pope St John Paul II was leading the Catholic Church. In that special week of May people in US were listening to Always Be My Baby by Mariah Carey. In UK Fastlove by George Michael was in the top 5 hits. Ridicule, directed by Patrice Leconte, was one of the most viewed movies released in 1996 while Simple Abundance by Sarah Ban Breathnach was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Hum Dono. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Death Rally or Frantic Flea.
But much more happened that day: find out below..
