Take me back to May 22, 2023

Let's take a walk down memory lane.

It is Monday, May 22, 2023. Babies who are born today will have the star sign Gemini. The weekend has just passed, so some people are feeling a bit down. Others are tired after partying too much.

The summer of 2023 has finally arrived. The weather has warmed up, and the evenings are brighter than usual. The school year is nearly finished. Memorial Day weekend is only a few days away, which means that many Americans are planning picnics, barbecues, and other outdoor events to celebrate the unofficial start of summer. In America, the song "Last Night" by Morgan Wallen is at the top of the singles charts, while "Miracle" by Calvin Harris and Ellie Goulding is the number-one song in the UK.

Joe Biden is the President of the United States, and the movie Fast X is at the top of the box office. Rishi Sunak is the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom. If you were to travel back to this day, notable figures such as Tina Turner, Sinéad O'Connor, Paul Reubens, and Angus Cloud would all still be alive.

On TV, people are watching popular shows such as "Stranger Things", "Young Sheldon", "You", and "Only Murders in the Building". Meanwhile, gamers are playing titles such as "Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II", "Dead Space (Remake)", "Star Wars Jedi: Survivor", and "The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom". Children and teenagers are watching television shows such as "Bubble Guppies", "Bunk'd", "Tyler Perry's Young Dylan", and "Monster High".
