Thursday January 01, 2015, NewYear’s Day

US date format: 1/1/2015, UK date format: 1/1/2015

It was Thursday, under the sign of Capricorn (see birth chart on January 1, 2015). The US president was Barack Obama (Democrat), the UK Prime Minister was David Cameron (Conservative). In that special week of January people in US were listening to Blank Space by Taylor Swift. Spare Parts, directed by Sean McNamara, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2015 while Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Just Add Magic. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Gal*Gun: Double Peace or Heroes of the Storm.
But much more happened that day: find out below..

You can also have a look at the whole 2015 or at January 01 across the years.
