Sunday February 13, 1983

US date format: 2/13/1983, UK date format: 13/2/1983

It was Sunday, under the sign of Aquarius (see birth chart on February 13, 1983). The US president was Ronald Reagan (Republican). Famous people born on this day include Reem Kherici and Sada Jacobson. In that special week of February people in US were listening to Down Under by Men At Work. In UK Too Shy by Kajagoogoo was in the top 5 hits. Local Hero, directed by Bill Forsyth, was one of the most viewed movies released in 1983 while Life, The Universe And Everything by Douglas Adams was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching The Hard Word. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Crystals of Zong or Godzilla.
But much more happened that day: find out below..
