Take me back to September 5, 1992

Let's take a stroll down memory lane.

The date is September 5, 1992, and it's a Saturday. Anyone born today will have the star sign Virgo. People are currently enjoying their weekend.

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, it is Labor Day weekend. People are attending barbecues and other gatherings. To many Americans, Labor Day represents the end of summer 1992. In America, the song "End Of The Road" by Boyz II Men is at the top of the singles charts, while "Rhythm Is A Dancer" by Snap is the number-one song in the UK.

George W. Bush Snr. is the President of the United States, and the movie Honeymoon in Vegas is at the top of the box office. John Major is the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom. On television, people are watching popular shows such as "Matlock", "In the Heat of the Night", "Family Matters", and "Dinosaurs".

Texting is not a thing yet. Instead, people are using landline phones and pagers. Furthermore, most people have never heard of the Internet. A civil war is taking place in the African country of Rwanda. 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.

In fashion, many of the trends from the late 1980s are still in vogue. Colored tights, denim overalls, leotards, flannel shirts, and shoulder pads are all fashionable at the moment. Grunge fashion has also become mainstream, popularizing band t-shirts, ripped jeans, mom jeans, and Doc Martens. A war is continuing to rage in Bosnia and Herzegovina. Details about the breakdown of Prince Charles' and Princess Diana's relationship are continuing to be published. Tabloid newspapers have recently leaked tapes of telephone conversations between Diana and James Gilbey. The leak has been labelled "Squidgygate" because of how Gilbey refers to Diana as "Squidgy" in the calls.

In Tupelo, Mississippi, a search is underway for 13-year-old Leigh Occhi, who recently disappeared from her home. If you were to travel back to this day, notable figures such as Anthony Perkins, Chuck Connors, Audrey Hepburn, and Thurgood Marshall would all still be alive. People are playing video games such as "Duck Hunt", "F-16 Combat Pilot", "Super Castlevania IV", and "The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past".

Children and teenagers are watching television shows such as "Alvin and the Chipmunks", "Fireman Sam", "Dink, the Little Dinosaur", and "The Adventures of Pete & Pete". Children are playing with toys such as Cabbage Patch Kids, Micro Machines, Pogs / Milkcaps, and Nerf Blaster.
