It was Monday, under the sign of Scorpio (see birth chart on November 17, 1997). 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. Famous people born on this day include Kim Yu-gyeom . In that special week of November people in US were listening to Candle In The Wind 1997 by Elton John. Good Will Hunting, directed by Gus Van Sant, was one of the most viewed movies released in 1997 while Come The Spring by Julie Garwood was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Bed & Breakfast. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Gunple: Gunman’s Proof or F-22: Air Dominance Fighter.
But much more happened that day: find out below..
