The date is May 31, 1992, and it's a Sunday. Babies who are born today will have the star sign Gemini. People are currently enjoying their weekend. However, because it's a Sunday, some are dreading the week ahead.

The summer of 1992 has finally arrived. The weather has warmed up, and the evenings are brighter than usual. The school year is nearly finished. In the United States, the Memorial Day weekend of 1992 has recently come and gone. To many, this means that the summer has officially started.
