Is this your lucky day? Bet on the figures of this date here

It was Tuesday, under the sign of Capricorn (see birth chart on January 8, 2008). The US president was George W. Bush (Republican), the UK Prime Minister was Gordon Brown (Labour), Pope Benedict XVI was leading the Catholic Church. In that special week of January people in US were listening to Low by Flo Rida. In UK Now You're Gone by Basshunter featuring DJ Mental Theo's Bazzheadz was in the top 5 hits. Let the Right One In, directed by Tomas Alfredson, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2008 while The Dangerous Book for Boys by Conn Iggulden, Hal Iggulden was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Gangland. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Calvin Tucker's Redneck Jamboree or Brothers in Arms: Hour of Heroes.
But much more happened that day: find out below..
