Tuesday July 24, 2001

US date format: 7/24/2001, UK date format: 24/7/2001

It was Tuesday, under the sign of Leo (see birth chart on July 24, 2001). 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 July people in US were listening to U Remind Me by Usher. In UK Eternity / The Road To Mandalay by Robbie Williams was in the top 5 hits. The Others, directed by Alejandro Amenábar, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2001 while The Jury by Steve Martini was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching All About Us. If you liked videogames you were probably playing AirForce Delta Storm or Aidyn Chronicles: The First Mage.
But much more happened that day: find out below..
