Take me back to June 22nd, 1997!

Let's take a stroll down memory lane!

The date is June 22nd, 1997 and it's a Sunday. Anyone born today will have the star sign Cancer. Currently, people are enjoying their weekend.

It's summer, so the temperatures are warmer and the evenings are longer than usual. In America, the song I'll Be Missing You by Puff Daddy & Faith Evans is on top of the singles charts. Over in the UK, Mmmbop by Hanson is the number one hit song.

Bill Clinton is currently the President of the United States and the movie Batman and Robin is at the top of the Box Office. In the United Kingdom, Tony Blair is the current Prime Minister. 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. Meanwhile, CDs have become the dominant format for music. People are buying CD players and the portable CD players such as the "Discman". As a result, the older cassette tape format is continuing to decline in sales. In fashion, bright and metallic colors are all the rage. A contrast with the darker "grunge" colors that were popular at the beginning of the 1990s. Women are wearing maxi skirts, bell bottoms, knee boots, crop tops, tube tops, slip dresses, maxi coats and platform shoes. Meanwhile, a lot of men have ditched their grunge and skater clothes in favor of sporting a more "dressy casual" look. Shorter hair on men is also becoming more popular.

It's 1997, so radio stations are being dominated by the likes of Toni Braxton, the Spice Girls, Puff Daddy, No Doubt, Hanson and Elton John. If you were to travel back to this day, notable figures such as Gianni Versace, Princess Diana, Mother Teresa and John Denver would all be still alive. On TV, people are watching popular shows such as "The X-Files", "Party of Five", "Father Ted" and "Sabrina, the Teenage Witch".

Meanwhile, gamers are playing titles such as "Quake", "Die Hard Trilogy", "The Elder Scrolls II: Daggerfall" and "Command & Conquer: Red Alert". Kids and teenagers are watching TV shows such as "Rugrats", "Bill Nye the Science Guy", "Friends" and "Daria". Popular toys at the moment include the likes of Yo-yo, Super Soaker (water gun), the Nintendo 64 and the Pokémon Trading Card Game.
