Wednesday September 11, 1996

US date format: 9/11/1996, UK date format: 11/9/1996

It was Wednesday, under the sign of Virgo (see birth chart on September 11, 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 September people in US were listening to Macarena (Bayside Boys Mix) by Los Del Rio. In UK Ready Or Not by Fugees was in the top 5 hits. Clueless, directed by Amy Heckerling, was one of the most viewed movies released in 1996 while Between Hope And History by Bill Clinton was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Dark Skies. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Bubble Memories: The Story of Bubble Bobble III or Arcade Classics.
But much more happened that day: find out below..

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