The date is January 5th, 1992, and it's a Sunday. Anyone born today will have the star sign Capricorn. People are currently enjoying their weekend. However, because it's a Sunday, some are dreading the week ahead.

People are starting to return back to work and school after the Christmas holidays. In America, the song Black Or White by Michael Jackson is at the top of the singles charts. Over in the UK, Bohemian Rhapsody by Queen is the number-one hit song.

It's 1992, so radio stations are being dominated by the likes of Kris Kross, Boyz II Men, Whitney Houston, Sir Mix-a-Lot, Right Said Fred, Snap! and Nirvana. If you were to travel back to this day, notable figures such as Benny Hill, Robert Reed, Anthony Perkins, and Chuck Connors would all still be alive.

People are playing video games such as "Battletoads", "Sonic the Hedgehog", "The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past", and "Super Castlevania IV". Kids and teenagers are watching TV shows such as "The Smurfs", "Chip 'n' Dale's Rescue Rangers", "The Adventures of Pete & Pete", and "Dinosaurs".
