US date format: 8/11/2016, UK date format: 11/8/2016

It was Thursday, under the sign of Leo (see birth chart on August 11, 2016). The US president was Barack Obama (Democrat), the UK Prime Minister was Theresa May (Conservative). In that special week of August people in US were listening to Cheap Thrills by Sia Featuring Sean Paul. The Evil in Us, directed by Jason William Lee, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2016 while Chase by James Patterson, Michael Ledwidge was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching The Big Fat Quiz of Everything. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Lego Worlds or Lego Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
But much more happened that day: find out below..

You can also have a look at the whole 2016 or at August 11 across the years.
