Friday May 01, 2015

US date format: 5/1/2015, UK date format: 1/5/2015

It was Friday, under the sign of Taurus (see birth chart on May 1, 2015). The US president was Barack Obama (Democrat). In that special week of May people in US were listening to See You Again by Wiz Khalifa Featuring Charlie Puth. The Lobster, directed by Yorgos Lanthimos, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2015 while All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Safe House. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Dragon Quest Heroes: The World Tree's Woe and the Blight Below or Jotun.
But much more happened that day: find out below..
