Monday May 08, 2017

US date format: 5/8/2017, UK date format: 8/5/2017

It was Monday, under the sign of Taurus (see birth chart on May 8, 2017). The US president was Donald John Trump (Republican), the UK Prime Minister was Theresa May (Conservative). In that special week of May people in US were listening to That's What I Like by Bruno Mars. The Square, directed by Ruben Östlund, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2017 while Into the Water by Paula Hawkins was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Wonder Woman. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War III.
But much more happened that day: find out below..

You can also have a look at the whole 2017 or at May 08 across the years.
