Ready for a walk down memory lane?

It is Wednesday, December 14, 1994. Anyone born today will have the star sign Sagittarius. It is "Hump Day", so many are beginning to think about the weekend ahead.

The Christmas season of 1994 is in full swing. People are putting up their decorations and festive songs are playing on the radio. In America, the song "On Bended Knee" by Boyz II Men is at the top of the singles charts, while "Stay Another Day" by East 17 is the number-one song in the UK. Bill Clinton is the President of the United States, and the movie Disclosure is at the top of the box office.

John Major is the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom. 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. Christmas films such as "Junior", "The Santa Clause," and "Miracle on 34th Street" are being shown in movie theaters. A war has recently broken out in Chechnya. Russian forces have now invaded the country in order to quash a rebellion by the Chechen Republic of Ichkeria.

In the United Kingdom, suspected English serial killer Fred West has been charged with 12 counts of murder. 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. On TV, people are watching popular shows such as "Home Improvement", "Melrose Place", "The X-Files", and "Walker, Texas Ranger".

Meanwhile, gamers are playing titles such as "X-Men", "Myst", "Super Street Fighter II", and "Warcraft: Orcs & Humans". Children and teenagers are watching television shows such as "Beverly Hills, 90210", "Home Improvement", "Hangin' with Mr. Cooper", and "The Magic School Bus". Popular toys at the moment include Screwball Scramble, Yo-yo, G.I. Joe (figures), and the Talkboy.
