Let's take a stroll down memory lane!

The date is May 25th, 1976 and it's a Tuesday. Anyone born today will have the star sign Gemini. The summer of 1976 has finally arrived. The weather has warmed up and the evenings are brighter than usual.

In America, the song Love Hangover by Diana Ross is on top of the singles charts. Over in the UK, Fernando by ABBA is the number one hit song. Gerald Ford is currently the President of the United States and the movie All the President's Men is at the top of the Box Office.

In the United Kingdom, James Callaghan is the current Prime Minister. Because it's 1976, the music charts are being dominated by the likes of ABBA, Queen, Chicago, Elton John, Kiki Dee, Wings and Rod Stewart. In fashion, clothes have become baggier and pants have become less flared. Sports clothing and the "disco look" are both popular at the moment. Women are wearing sundresses, strapless tops with t-shirts, shoulder pads, cardigans, knee-length skirts and daisy dukes. Meanwhile, men are wearing tracksuits, flare jeans, low-top sneakers and untucked collared shirts.

If you were to travel back to this day, notable figures such as Anissa Jones, Tommy Bolin, Elvis Presley and Marc Bolan would all be still alive. On TV, people are watching popular shows such as "Hawaii Five-O", "Marcus Welby, M.D.", "The Waltons" and "M*A*S*H". Meanwhile, gamers are playing titles such as "Tank", "Pursuit", "Gun Fight" and "Breakout".

Children and teenagers are currently watching television shows such as "Mister Rogers' Neighborhood", "The Pink Panther Show", "Scooby-Doo, Where Are You!" and "The Great Grape Ape Show". If you're a kid or a teenager, then you're probably playing with toys such as Operation, G.I. Joe Adventure Team, Baby Alive (doll) and Magna Doodle.
