US date format: 12/2/2016, UK date format: 2/12/2016

It was Friday, under the sign of Sagittarius (see birth chart on December 2, 2016). The US president was Barack Obama (Democrat). In that special week of December people in US were listening to Black Beatles by Rae Sremmurd Featuring Gucci Mane. Fences, directed by Denzel Washington, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2016 while Cross the Line by James Patterson was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching White Rabbit Project. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Lego Star Wars: The Force Awakens or Warhammer 40,000: Eternal Crusade.
But much more happened that day: find out below..
