Let's take a walk down memory lane.

The date is February 19, 1993, and it's a Friday. Babies who are born today will have the star sign Pisces. Many people have "that Friday feeling" and are looking forward to the weekend.

Valentine's Day of 1993 has just passed. In America, the song "I Will Always Love You" by Whitney Houston is at the top of the singles charts, while "No Limit" by No Unlimited is the number-one song in the UK. Bill Clinton is the President of the United States, and the movie Groundhog Day 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 "Star Trek: The Next Generation", "Quantum Leap", "Seinfeld", and "One Foot in the Grave". 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. 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.

Meanwhile, in technology news, a relatively new storage format called the CD is beginning to outpace the regular cassette tape in music sales. The disc-based format gives listeners the ability to skip between songs instead of having to manually rewind and forward. A playing discs game called "Pogs" is currently spreading in popularity throughout the world. It's 1993, so radio stations are being dominated by the likes of Meat Loaf, UB40, Snow, Haddaway, Whitney Houston, Take That, Janet Jackson and Mariah Carey.

A new film called Groundhog Day, starring Bill Murray, has just been released in movie theaters. Former English footballer Bobby Moore has recently announced to the media that he is suffering from bowel and liver cancer. There is widespread shock at the news that missing 2-year-old James Bulger has been found murdered in Merseyside, England.

If you were to travel back to this day, notable figures such as Bobby Moore, Brandon Lee, Conway Twitty, and Dražen Petrović would all still be alive. People are playing video games such as "Desert Strike ", "Street Fighter II: The World Warrior", "Wolfenstein 3D", and "Mortal Kombat". Kids and teenagers are watching TV shows such as "Thomas the Tank Engine", "Beverly Hills, 90210", "Clarissa Explains It All", and "X-Men: The Animated Series".

Children are playing with toys such as Screwball Scramble, Lego Pirates, Yo-yo, and Nerf Blaster.
