US date format: 12/30/1999, UK date format: 30/12/1999

It was Thursday, under the sign of Capricorn (see birth chart on December 30, 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 Praise You by Fatboy Slim was in the top 5 hits. My Dog Skip, directed by Jay Russell, was one of the most viewed movies released in 1999 while Personal Injuries by Scott Turow was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Nightcap. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Aisle or Fighting Steel.
