Tuesday 1 January 2008, NewYear’s Day

It was Tuesday, under the sign of Capricorn. The US president was George W. Bush (Republican). In that special week of January people in US were listening to Low by Flo Rida. P.S. I Love You, directed by Richard LaGravenese, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2008 while Eat, Pray, Love by Elizabeth Gilbert was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Passport to Explore. If you liked videogames you were probably playing BrainPipe or Barkley, Shut Up and Jam: Gaiden.
But much more happened that day: find out below..
