Thursday December 17, 1992

US date format: 12/17/1992, UK date format: 17/12/1992

It was Thursday, under the sign of Sagittarius (see birth chart on December 17, 1992). The US president was George H. W. Bush (Republican). In that special week of December people in US were listening to I Will Always Love You by Whitney Houston. Roja, directed by Mani Ratnam, was one of the most viewed movies released in 1992 while Young Men & Fire by Norman Maclean was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Gone to Seed. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Bulls vs. Blazers and the NBA Playoffs or Dr. Franken The Adventures of Dr. Franken.
But much more happened that day: find out below..
