Let's take a stroll down memory lane!

The date is September 4th, 1991, and it's a Wednesday. Anyone born today will have the star sign Virgo. Schools and colleges are starting again, and fall has officially arrived. As a result, temperatures are beginning to cool, and trees are starting to shed their leaves.

In the United States, Labor Day of 1991 has recently come and passed. To many, this means that the summer is officially over. The song (Everything I Do) I Do It For You by Bryan Adams is at the top of the singles charts in both the USA and the United Kingdom. George W. Bush Snr. is the President of the United States, and the movie Hot Shots! is at the top of the box office.

John Major is the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom. Texting is not a thing yet. Instead, people are using landline phones and pagers. Furthermore, most people have never heard of the Internet. In fashion, many of the trends from the late 80s are still popular. Colored tights, denim overalls, leotards, flannel shirts and shoulder pads are all fashionable at the moment.

A civil war is taking place in the African country of Rwanda. It's 1991, so the airwaves are being dominated by artists such as Bryan Adams, Michael Jackson, Roxette, R.E.M., Color Me Badd and Paula Abdul. A rock subgenre called "Grunge" is starting to rise in popularity.

In Europe, the Soviet Union is continuing to dissolve. Russia has restored the white, blue and red tricolour as its national flag. A recent coup attempt against Mikhail Gorbachev by Soviet hardliners has failed. In response, the leaders of the coup have all been arrested and Russian president Boris Yeltsin has banned the Communist Party. Meanwhile, Ukraine, Estonia, Moldova and a list of other former Soviet states have all declared their independence from the USSR. In the United States, a recent fire at the Imperial Foods plant in Hamlet, North Carolina has tragically claimed the lives of 25 people. If you were to travel back to this day, notable figures such as Miles Davis, Freddie Mercury, Robert Reed, and Anthony Perkins would all still be alive.

On TV, people are watching popular shows such as "Matlock", "Quantum Leap", "Seinfeld", and "Family Matters". Meanwhile, gamers are playing titles such as "Paperboy", "DuckTales", "Castle of Illusion Starring Mickey Mouse", and "Streets of Rage". Kids and teenagers are watching TV shows such as "Garfield and Friends", "Roseanne", "Round the Twist", and "Clarissa Explains It All".

Popular toys at the moment include Sylvanian Families, Polly Pocket, Lego Pirates, and G.I. Joe (figures).
