Take me back to October 2nd, 2017!

Let's take a stroll down memory lane!

The date is October 2nd, 2017, and it's a Monday. Anyone born today will have the star sign Libra. The summer is long gone. Temperatures have started to become much cooler and the evenings are beginning to get darker.

Fallen leaves have carpeted driveways, lawns, pathways and sidewalks and there's a fresh earthy scent in the ear. In America, the song Look What You Made Me Do by Taylor Swift is on top of the singles charts. Over in the UK, Too Good at Goodbyes by Sam Smith is the number one hit song.

Donald Trump is currently the President of the United States, and the movie Kingsman: The Golden Circle is at the top of the Box Office. In the United Kingdom, Theresa May is the current Prime Minister. It's 2017, so the music charts are being dominated by artists such as Ed Sheeran, Luis Fonsi, Bruno Mars, Kendrick Lamar, The Chainsmokers, Migos, Sam Hunt and Post Malone.

An Internet meme called "Distracted Boyfriend" is currently going viral. The comedy song "Man's Not Hot" by Big Shaq has become an Internet sensation. Playboy magazine founder Hugh Hefner has just passed away at the age of 91.

58 people have been left dead in Las Vegas after a gun attack by a 64-year-old man called Stephen Paddock. Paddock opened fire on a crowd of people attending a music festival on the Las Vegas Strip. The event has reignited discussion about gun control in the United States. Former football player O.J. Simpson has just been released from prison after serving nine years for kidnapping and armed robbery. Tributes are pouring in following the accidental death of singer Tom Petty due to mixed drug toxicity.

If you were to travel back to this day, notable figures such as Tom Petty, Lil Peep, Malcolm Young and August Ames would all be still alive. On TV, people are watching popular shows such as "Black-ish", "Better Call Saul", "Stranger Things" and "13 Reasons Why". Meanwhile, gamers are playing titles such as "Cities: Skylines", "The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild", "Destiny 2" and "Ark: Survival Evolved".
