US date format: 2/6/2002, UK date format: 6/2/2002

It was Wednesday, under the sign of Aquarius (see birth chart on February 6, 2002). The US president was George W. Bush (Republican), 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 U Got It Bad by Usher. In UK Hero by Enrique Iglesias was in the top 5 hits. Temptation Island, directed by Joey Gosiengfiao, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2002 while The Cat Who Went Up The Creek by Lilian Jackson Braun was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Test Drive. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Die Hard: Vendetta or BMX XXX.
But much more happened that day: find out below..
