Sunday February 06, 2000

US date format: 2/6/2000, UK date format: 6/2/2000

It was Sunday, under the sign of Aquarius (see birth chart on February 6, 2000). 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 February people in US were listening to I Knew I Loved You by Savage Garden. In UK Rise by Gabrielle was in the top 5 hits. 28 Days, directed by Betty Thomas, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2000 while Harry Potter And The Sorcerer'S Stone by J. K. Rowling was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Belonging. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Dynamite Slugger or Bang! Gunship Elite.
But much more happened that day: find out below..

You can also have a look at the whole 2000 or at February 06 across the years.
