Mom and Dad Were Born in the Year of the Monkey

Yup! You heard me right! Mommy and Daddy were born in the Year of the Monkey.

I was just curious as to what happened the year they were born so that I grabbed this one from Mommy Iceah of Chicken Heart. Hope you don't mind my grabbing this one Mommy Iceah!

I tried to find out what happened the year I was born (2008) but it looks they still haven't got any in their database yet. The latest year they had on the list was 1995.

In 1980 (the year your parents were born)

Jimmy Carter is president of the US

President Carter announces punitive measures and embargoes against the USSR in retaliation for the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan

Mount St. Helens in Washington state erupts in a violent blast estimated to be 500 times as powerful as the Hiroshima atomic bomb

Ronald Reagan is elected the 40th US president in a sweeping victory

US Representative Michael O. Myers is expelled from the House for his role in the Abscam scandal

Hewlett-Packard announces release of its first personal computer

Microsoft announces their version of UNIX, Xenix

Christina Ricci, Chelsea Clinton, Venus Williams, Jessica Simpson, Macaulay Culkin, and Jake Gyllenhaal are born

Philadelphia Phllies win the World Series

Pittsburgh Steelers win Superbowl XIV

New York Islanders win the Stanley Cup

The Empire Strikes Back is the top grossing film

"Lady" by Kenny Rogers spends the most time at the top of the US charts

U.S. viewers get caught up in the "Who Shot J.R.?" cliff hanger on the soap opera series, Dallas, which is solved on a November 21 episode, drawing a record numbers of viewers

Looks interesting huh? But I think the events that took place happened in the US. I wish there were more info about what happened in the Philippines at this time. ;D
