Take me back to December 15, 1995

Ready for a walk down memory lane?

The date is December 15, 1995, and it's a Friday. Anyone born today will have the star sign Sagittarius. Many people have "that Friday feeling" and are looking forward to the weekend.

The Christmas season of 1995 is in full swing. People are putting up their decorations and festive songs are playing on the radio. In America, the song "One Sweet Day" by Mariah Carey & Boyz II Men is at the top of the singles charts, while "Earth Song" by Michael Jackson is the number-one song in the UK. Bill Clinton is the President of the United States, and the movie Jumanji 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 "Murder, She Wrote", "Roseanne", "Xena: Warrior Princess", and "JAG". 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. The CD is quickly becoming the dominant format for music, and people are buying portable players such as the "Discman". Consequently, sales of cassette tapes are continuing to decline.

It's 1995, so radio stations are being dominated by the likes of Celine Dion, Everything but the Girl, Coolio, Oasis, Michael Jackson, Boyzone, Madonna, Montell Jordan, TLC and Mariah Carey. In Europe, the war in Bosnia and Herzegovina has recently come to an end following the intervention of NATO. If you were to travel back to this day, notable figures such as Dean Martin, Margaux Hemingway, Agnieszka Kotlarska, and Tupac Shakur would all still be alive.

People are playing video games such as "Mortal Kombat II", "Air Combat", "The Adventures of Batman & Robin", and "FIFA Soccer 96". Kids and teenagers are watching TV shows such as "Roseanne", "Beverly Hills, 90210", "Bill Nye the Science Guy", and "Boy Meets World". Children are playing with toys such as Screwball Scramble, the Sega Genesis / Mega Drive, the SEGA Game Gear, and Nerf Blaster.
