Sunday July 12, 2009

US date format: 7/12/2009, UK date format: 12/7/2009

It was Sunday, under the sign of Cancer (see birth chart on July 12, 2009). The US president was Barack Obama (Democrat), the UK Prime Minister was Gordon Brown (Labour), Pope Benedict XVI was leading the Catholic Church. In that special week of July people in US were listening to I Gotta Feeling by The Black Eyed Peas. Orphan, directed by Jaume Collet-Serra, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2009 while Renegade by Richard Wolffe was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Little White Lie. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Build 'n Race or Cursed Mountain.
But much more happened that day: find out below..
