Sunday August 11, 1996

US date format: 8/11/1996, UK date format: 11/8/1996

It was Sunday, under the sign of Leo (see birth chart on August 11, 1996). The US president was Bill Clinton (Democrat). In that special week of August people in US were listening to Macarena (Bayside Boys Mix) by Los Del Rio. In UK Wannabe by The Spice Girls was in the top 5 hits. Tin Cup, directed by Ron Shelton, was one of the most viewed movies released in 1996 while The Last Don by Mario Puzo was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Safe and Sound. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Discworld II: Missing Presumed...!? or Death Tank.
But much more happened that day: find out below..

You can also have a look at the whole 1996 or at August 11 across the years.
