Saturday December 29, 1984

US date format: 12/29/1984, UK date format: 29/12/1984

It was Saturday, under the sign of Capricorn (see birth chart on December 29, 1984). The US president was Ronald Reagan (Republican). Famous people born on this day include Branden Jacobs-Jenkins and Sean Stone. In that special week of December people in US were listening to Like A Virgin by Madonna. Fatal Games, directed by Michael Elliot, was one of the most viewed movies released in 1984 while The Weaker Vessel by Antonia Fraser was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Drei reizende Schwestern. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Injured Engine or Dragonworld.
But much more happened that day: find out below..
