Let's take a stroll down memory lane!

The date is November 3rd, 1977 and it's a Thursday. Anyone born today will have the star sign Scorpio. Halloween has just come and passed.

It's November, so the evenings are getting darker and the days are getting colder. In America, the song You Light Up My Life by Debby Boone is on top of the singles charts. Over in the UK, Yes Sir I Can Boogie by Baccara is the number one hit song.

Jimmy Carter is currently the President of the United States and the movie Oh, God! is at the top of the Box Office. In the United Kingdom, James Callaghan is the current Prime Minister. 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.

Because it's 1977, the music charts are being dominated by the likes of The Eagles, Donna Summer, Wings, Boney M, Baccara, Stevie Wonder, Barbra Streisand and Debby Boone. If you were to travel back to this day, notable figures such as Charlie Chaplin and Keith Moon would be still alive. On TV, people are watching popular shows such as "All in the Family", "Barnaby Jones", "Quincy, M.E." and "Soap".

Meanwhile, gamers are playing titles such as "Tank", "Pursuit", "Gun Fight" and "Breakout". Kids and teenagers are watching TV shows such as "Mister Rogers' Neighborhood", "The Pink Panther Show", "Fat Albert and the Cosby Kids" and "Bagpuss". If you're a kid or a teenager, then you're probably playing with toys such as Dungeons & Dragons, Stretch Armstrong, Lego Technic and the Atari 2600.
