Friday 24 December 2004, Christmas Eve

It was Friday, under the sign of Capricorn. The US president was George W. Bush (Republican). In that special week of December people in US were listening to Drop It Like It's Hot by Snoop Dogg. In UK Do They Know It's Christmas? by Band Aid 20 was in the top 5 hits. Hotel Rwanda, directed by Terry George, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2004 while The Godfather Returns by Mark Winegardner was one of the best selling books. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Cat Girl Alliance or Daigasso! Band Brothers.
But much more happened that day: find out below..
