Wednesday December 13, 2000

US date format: 12/13/2000, UK date format: 13/12/2000

It was Wednesday, under the sign of Sagittarius (see birth chart on December 13, 2000). The US president was Bill Clinton (Democrat), the UK Prime Minister was Tony Blair (Labour), Pope St John Paul II was leading the Catholic Church. In that special week of December people in US were listening to Independent Women Part I by Destiny's Child. In UK Independent Women Part 1 by Destiny's Child was in the top 5 hits. Finding Forrester, directed by Gus Van Sant, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2000 while Nothing Like It In The World by Stephen E. Ambrose was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Canada: A People's History. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Elasto Mania or Die Hard Trilogy 2: Viva Las Vegas.
But much more happened that day: find out below..
