Take me back to March 3, 2000

Let's take a stroll down memory lane.

The date is March 3, 2000, and it's a Friday. Anyone born today will have the star sign Pisces. Many people have "that Friday feeling" and are looking forward to the weekend.

Spring is creeping in, and the evenings are starting to get brighter. In America, the song "I Knew I Loved You" by Savage Garden is at the top of the singles charts, while "Pure Shores" by All Saints is the number-one song in the UK. Bill Clinton is the President of the United States, and the movie Whole Nine Yards is at the top of the box office.

Tony Blair is the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom. On television, people are watching popular shows such as "Party of Five", "Everybody Loves Raymond", "Buffy the Vampire Slayer", and "The Royle Family". A relatively new form of communication called "text messaging" is becoming more widespread. Although the technology has been around since the mid-1990s, it was only recently that cell providers allowed users to send SMS messages to people on different networks.

The Nokia 3210 is currently one of the most popular cellphones on the market. In technology news, more and more music companies are beginning to release MP3 players. The new MP3 format means that music listeners are able to listen to multiple albums on the go. It's the year 2000, so the music charts are being dominated by the likes of Christina Aguilera, Faith Hill, Savage Garden, Destiny's Child, Santana, Sisqó, Creed, Aaliyah and Enrique Iglesias.

If you were to travel back to this day, notable figures such as David Tomlinson, Walter Matthau, Yokozuna, and Kirsty MacColl would all still be alive. People are playing video games such as "Mario Party", "Counter-Strike", "Medal of Honor", and "Resident Evil - Code: Veronica". Children and teenagers are watching television shows such as "Hey Arnold!", "Pokemon", "Bob the Builder", and "SpongeBob SquarePants".

Children are playing with toys such as Groovy Girls, Star Wars Phantom Menace figures, Road Champs bikes, and Rocket the Wonder Dog.
