It was Monday, under the sign of Sagittarius (see birth chart on December 6, 1999). The US president was Bill Clinton (Democrat), the UK Prime Minister was Tony Blair (Labour), Pope St John Paul II was leading the Catholic Church. In that special week of December people in US were listening to Smooth by Santana. In UK The Millennium Prayer by Cliff Richard was in the top 5 hits. The Talented Mr. Ripley, directed by Anthony Minghella, was one of the most viewed movies released in 1999 while Plainsong by Kent Haruf was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Anna and the King. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Echo Night 2: The Lord of Nightmares or Custom Robo.
But much more happened that day: find out below..
