US date format: 2/24/1996, UK date format: 24/2/1996

It was Saturday, under the sign of Pisces (see birth chart on February 24, 1996). 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 February people in US were listening to One Sweet Day by Mariah Carey. In UK Spaceman by Babylon Zoo was in the top 5 hits. Bloodsport 2, directed by Alan Mehrez, was one of the most viewed movies released in 1996 while Five Days In Paris by Danielle Steel was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Marisol. If you liked videogames you were probably playing DoReMi Fantasy: Milon's DokiDoki Adventure or Frantic Flea.
But much more happened that day: find out below..
