Thursday January 08, 2015

US date format: 1/8/2015, UK date format: 8/1/2015

It was Thursday, under the sign of Capricorn (see birth chart on January 8, 2015). The US president was Barack Obama (Democrat), the UK Prime Minister was David Cameron (Conservative). In that special week of January people in US were listening to Blank Space by Taylor Swift. Dope, directed by Rick Famuyiwa, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2015 while Flesh And Blood by Patricia Cornwell was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Nightwatch. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Disney Infinity 3.0 or Galactic Civilizations III.
But much more happened that day: find out below..

You can also have a look at the whole 2015 or at January 08 across the years.
