Sunday November 23, 1997

US date format: 11/23/1997, UK date format: 23/11/1997

It was Sunday, under the sign of Sagittarius (see birth chart on November 23, 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. 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 Eat My Dust or The Forgotten Realms Archives.
But much more happened that day: find out below..

You can also have a look at the whole 1997 or at November 23 across the years.
