It was Sunday, under the sign of Aquarius (see birth chart on February 12, 1978). The US president was Jimmy Carter (Democrat). Famous people born on this day include Douglas Fisher and Brett Hodgson. In that special week of February people in US were listening to Stayin' Alive by Bee Gees. In UK Take A Chance On Me by Abba was in the top 5 hits. Coming Home, directed by Hal Ashby, was one of the most viewed movies released in 1978 while The Honorable Schoolboy by John le Carré was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching All Creatures Great and Small. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Adventureland or Santa Paravia en Fiumaccio.
