US date format: 5/4/2008, UK date format: 4/5/2008

It was Sunday, under the sign of Taurus (see birth chart on May 4, 2008). The US president was George W. Bush (Republican). In that special week of May people in US were listening to Lollipop by Lil Wayne. In UK American Boy by Estelle featuring Kanye West was in the top 5 hits. Vicky Cristina Barcelona, directed by Woody Allen, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2008 while Unaccustomed Earth by Jhumpa Lahiri was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Cinemania. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Coffeetime Crosswords or 100 Classic Book Collection.
But much more happened that day: find out below..
