Wednesday December 02, 2015

US date format: 12/2/2015, UK date format: 2/12/2015

It was Wednesday, under the sign of Sagittarius (see birth chart on December 2, 2015). The US president was Barack Obama (Democrat), the UK Prime Minister was David Cameron (Conservative). In that special week of December people in US were listening to Hello by Adele. Star Wars: The Force Awakens, directed by J.J. Abrams, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2015 while The Crossing by Michael Connelly was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Born This Way. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Just Dance: Disney Party 2 or Dirt Rally.
But much more happened that day: find out below..

You can also have a look at the whole 2015 or at December 02 across the years.
