US date format: 12/16/1995, UK date format: 16/12/1995

It was Saturday, under the sign of Sagittarius (see birth chart on December 16, 1995). 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 December people in US were listening to One Sweet Day by Mariah Carey. In UK Earth Song by Michael Jackson was in the top 5 hits. Nixon, directed by Oliver Stone, was one of the most viewed movies released in 1995 while Lincoln by David Herbert Donald was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching The Thin Blue Line. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Aaahh! Real Monsters or Donald Duck no Mahō no Bōshi.
But much more happened that day: find out below..
