Thursday March 20, 1997

US date format: 3/20/1997, UK date format: 20/3/1997

It was Thursday, under the sign of Pisces (see birth chart on March 20, 1997). 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 March people in US were listening to Can't Nobody Hold Me Down by Puff Daddy. In UK Don't Speak by No Doubt was in the top 5 hits. The Saint, directed by Phillip Noyce, was one of the most viewed movies released in 1997 while The List by Steve Martini was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Shapes of the Invisible. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Doom 64 or Africa Trail.
But much more happened that day: find out below..
