Sunday December 26, 1999

US date format: 12/26/1999, UK date format: 26/12/1999

It was Sunday, under the sign of Capricorn (see birth chart on December 26, 1999). 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 December people in US were listening to Smooth by Santana. In UK The Millennium Prayer by Cliff Richard was in the top 5 hits. Temptations, directed by Romy Hayes, was one of the most viewed movies released in 1999 while Pop Goes the Weasel by James Patterson was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Nightcap. If you liked videogames you were probably playing The ClueFinders 5th Grade Adventures: The Secret of the Living Volcano or Fatal Fury: Wild Ambition.
But much more happened that day: find out below..
