US date format: 7/1/2016, UK date format: 1/7/2016

It was Friday, under the sign of Cancer (see birth chart on July 1, 2016). The US president was Barack Obama (Democrat). In that special week of July people in US were listening to One Dance by Drake Featuring WizKid & Kyla. The Infiltrator, directed by Brad Furman, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2016 while Here's to Us by Elin Hilderbrand was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Wolf Creek. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Lego Worlds or Lego Marvel's Avengers.
But much more happened that day: find out below..
