Saturday April 24, 2004

US date format: 4/24/2004, UK date format: 24/4/2004

It was Saturday, under the sign of Taurus (see birth chart on April 24, 2004). 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 April people in US were listening to Yeah! by Usher. In UK Yeah! by Usher featuring Lil' Jon & Ludacris was in the top 5 hits. Dear Frankie, directed by Shona Auerbach, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2004 while Nighttime Is My Time by Mary Higgins Clark was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Imperium. If you liked videogames you were probably playing ATV Offroad Fury 3 or Champions of Norrath.
But much more happened that day: find out below..

You can also have a look at the whole 2004 or at April 24 across the years.
