Sunday January 20, 2002

US date format: 1/20/2002, UK date format: 20/1/2002

It was Sunday, under the sign of Aquarius (see birth chart on January 20, 2002). The US president was George W. Bush (Republican), the UK Prime Minister was Tony Blair (Labour), Pope St John Paul II was leading the Catholic Church. In that special week of January people in US were listening to U Got It Bad by Usher. In UK Gotta Get Thru This by Daniel Bedingfield was in the top 5 hits. Fubar, directed by Michael Dowse, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2002 while Skipping Christmas by John Grisham was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Flatland. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Another War or Command & Conquer: Renegade.
But much more happened that day: find out below..

You can also have a look at the whole 2002 or at January 20 across the years.
