Take me back to December 3, 1994

Let's take a stroll down memory lane.

The date is December 3, 1994, and it's a Saturday. Anyone born today will have the star sign Sagittarius. People are currently enjoying their weekend.

The Christmas season of 1994 has begun. In America, the song "I'll Make Love To You" by Boyz II Men is at the top of the singles charts, while "Let Me Be Your Fantasy" by Baby D. is the number-one song in the UK. Bill Clinton is the President of the United States, and the movie The Santa Clause 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 "Last of the Summer Wine", "Seinfeld", "Mad About You", and "Ellen". 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 new form of communication called "text messaging" is starting to become more widespread. However, it can only be done if both the sender and the receiver are on the same cell network. Meanwhile, a global system called "the Internet" is also starting to take off. Each day, more and more people are learning how to send emails and browse "websites" on the World Wide Web by connecting their IBM computers to noisy dial-up modems. In fashion, "grunge" clothing has fallen out of favor, and women are beginning to wear form-fitting outfits such as slip dresses and pencil skirts. Movies such as Clueless and The Craft have popularized the "sexy schoolgirl" look.

It's 1994, so radio stations are being dominated by the likes of All-4-One, Boyz II Men, R. Kelly, Céline Dion, Bruce Springsteen, Bryan Adams, Meat Loaf, Bon Jovi, Wet Wet Wet, Rednex and Mariah Carey. In Europe, a war is continuing to rage in Bosnia and Herzegovina. In Finland, voters have rejected the chance to join the European Union. In the United States, serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer has been beaten to death in prison. Meanwhile, in music news, Irish boyband "Boyzone" have released their new single "Love Me for a Reason".

Rap star Tupac Shakur is recovering from his injuries after he was robbed and shot five times in the lobby of Quad Recording Studios in Manhattan. In celebrity news, actor Richard Gere and supermodel Cindy Crawford have announced they are separating after four years of marriage. On television, the final episode of "Clarissa Explains It All", starring Melissa Joan Hart, has just been aired. The teen sitcom had been running since 1991.

If you were to travel back to this day, notable figures such as Richey Edwards, Eazy E, Selena, and Bob Ross would all still be alive. People are playing video games such as "Mortal Kombat", "X-Men", "Tetris 2", and "Warcraft: Orcs & Humans". Children and teenagers are watching television shows such as "Dink, the Little Dinosaur", "The Simpsons", "Goof Troop", and "Weird Science".

Children are playing with toys such as Yo-yo, Super Soaker (water gun), Littlest Pet Shop, and Action Man.
