Monday January 12, 2015

US date format: 1/12/2015, UK date format: 12/1/2015

It was Monday, under the sign of Capricorn (see birth chart on January 12, 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 Uptown Funk! by Mark Ronson Featuring Bruno Mars. Me and Earl and the Dying Girl, directed by Alfonso Gomez-Rejon, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2015 while Leaving Time by Jodi Picoult was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Nightwatch. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Dungeon Hunter 5 or Dead Synchronicity.
But much more happened that day: find out below..

You can also have a look at the whole 2015 or at January 12 across the years.
