Sunday May 26, 1991

US date format: 5/26/1991, UK date format: 26/5/1991

It was Sunday, under the sign of Gemini (see birth chart on May 26, 1991). The US president was George H. W. Bush (Republican), the UK Prime Minister was Sir John Major (Conservative), Pope St John Paul II was leading the Catholic Church. Famous people born on this day include Kevin Abernathy and Julianna Rose Mauriello. In that special week of May people in US were listening to I Don't Wanna Cry by Mariah Carey. In UK The Shoop Shoop Song (It's In His Kiss) by Cher was in the top 5 hits. City Slickers, directed by Ron Underwood, was one of the most viewed movies released in 1991 while In Our Defense by Ellen Alderman and Caroline Kennedy was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching All Good Things. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Bulls vs Lakers and the NBA Playoffs or Chuck Yeager's Air Combat.
