Let's take a stroll down memory lane!

The date is December 6th, 2003 and it's a Saturday. Anyone born today will have the star sign Sagittarius. Currently, people are enjoying their weekend.

The Christmas season of 2003 has just started. In America, the song Stand Up by Ludacris is on top of the singles charts. Over in the UK, Leave Right Now by Will Young is the number one hit song.

George W. Bush Jnr. is currently the President of the United States and the movie The Last Samurai is at the top of the Box Office. In the United Kingdom, Tony Blair is the current Prime Minister. In technology news, more and more people are beginning to gain access to the Internet. Internet speeds are increasing and MP3 sharing is beginning to threaten the existence of music stores.

A popular software program called LimeWire is currently being used by many people to share music, software and videos. It is also a haven for computer viruses. Cameras on phones are beginning to become more and more popular. Although the photographs that they take are still lacking in quality. It's 2003, so the music charts are being dominated by the likes of 50 Cent, R. Kelly, Sean Paul, 3 Doors Down, Nelly, Evanescence, Chingy and Beyonce.

Internet users are using MSN Messenger to chat with each other online. A flash animation of badgers singing "badger, badger, badger" has become extremely popular on the Internet. The animation, which loops indefinitely, was published by British animator Jonti Picking in September, 2003. If you were to travel back to this day, notable figures such as Pat Tillman, Ronald Reagan, Ray Charles and Marlon Brando would all be still alive.

On TV, people are watching popular shows such as "Frasier", "The Powerpuff Girls", "Alias" and "Without a Trace".
