Wednesday January 23, 1991

US date format: 1/23/1991, UK date format: 23/1/1991

It was Wednesday, under the sign of Aquarius (see birth chart on January 23, 1991). The US president was George H. W. Bush (Republican), the UK Prime Minister was Sir John Major (Conservative), Pope St John Paul II was leading the Catholic Church. In that special week of January people in US were listening to The First Time by Surface. In UK Sadness Part 1 by Enigma was in the top 5 hits. Operation Condor, directed by Jackie Chan, was one of the most viewed movies released in 1991 while The Secret Pilgrim by John le Carré was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching All Together Now. If you liked videogames you were probably playing CJ's Elephant Antics or E.S.S. Mega.
But much more happened that day: find out below..

You can also have a look at the whole 1991 or at January 23 across the years.
