Let's take a stroll down memory lane!

The date is December 8th, 1994 and it's a Thursday. Anyone born today will have the star sign Sagittarius. The Christmas season of 1994 has just started.

In America, the song On Bended Knee by Boyz II Men is on top of the singles charts. Over in the UK, Let Me Be Your Fantasy by Baby D. is the number one hit song. Bill Clinton is currently the President of the United States and the movie The Santa Clause is at the top of the Box Office.

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 continuing to grow in popularity. 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 declined in popularity 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 school girl" 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 on in Bosnia and Herzegovina. 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 Eazy E, Selena, Bob Ross and Jerry Garcia would all be still alive. On TV, people are watching popular shows such as "Last of the Summer Wine", "Martin", "Babylon 5" and "Ellen". Meanwhile, gamers are playing titles such as "Myst", "Disney's Aladdin", "Mario's Time Machine" and "The Jungle Book".

Kids and teenagers are watching TV shows such as "Art Attack", "Blossom", "Taz-Mania" and "The Magic School Bus". Popular toys at the moment include the likes of Micro Machines, G.I. Joe (figures), Mighty Max and Dear Diary.
