Thursday March 01, 2012

US date format: 3/1/2012, UK date format: 1/3/2012

It was Thursday, under the sign of Pisces (see birth chart on March 1, 2012). The US president was Barack Obama (Democrat), the UK Prime Minister was David Cameron (Conservative), Pope Benedict XVI was leading the Catholic Church. In that special week of March people in US were listening to Part Of Me by Katy Perry. The Cabin in the Woods, directed by Drew Goddard, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2012 while A Dance With Dragons by George R. R. Martin was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Die Chefin. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Call of Duty: Black Ops: Declassified or Amy.
But much more happened that day: find out below..

You can also have a look at the whole 2012 or at March 01 across the years.
