Thursday 1 January 2009, NewYear’s Day

It was Thursday, under the sign of Capricorn (see planets position on January 1, 2009). The US president was George W. Bush (Republican). In that special week of January people in US were listening to Single Ladies (Put A Ring On It) by Beyonce. Mary and Max, directed by Adam Elliot, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2009 while Eclipse by Stephenie Meyer was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Secret Millionaire. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Bakugan Battle Brawlers or Cooking Mama 3: Shop & Chop.
But much more happened that day: find out below..

You can also have a look at the whole 2009 or at January 01 across the years.
