Tuesday February 12, 1980

US date format: 2/12/1980, UK date format: 12/2/1980

It was Tuesday, under the sign of Aquarius (see birth chart on February 12, 1980). The US president was Jimmy Carter (Democrat). Famous people born on this day include Christina Ricci and Gucci Mane. In that special week of February people in US were listening to Do That To Me One More Time by Captain and Tennille. In UK Too Much Too Young (The Special AKA Live! EP) by The Specials was in the top 5 hits. The Ninth Configuration, directed by William Peter Blatty, was one of the most viewed movies released in 1980 while Aunt Erma'S Cope Book by Erma Bombeck was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Emilia. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Space Firebird or Star Castle.
But much more happened that day: find out below..

You can also have a look at the whole 1980 or at February 12 across the years.
