Saturday July 13, 2013

US date format: 7/13/2013, UK date format: 13/7/2013

It was Saturday, under the sign of Cancer (see birth chart on July 13, 2013). The US president was Barack Obama (Democrat), the UK Prime Minister was David Cameron (Conservative). In that special week of July people in US were listening to Blurred Lines by Robin Thicke. Blue Jasmine, directed by Woody Allen, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2013 while The Ocean At The End Of The Lane by Neil Gaiman was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching About Time. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Dracula 4: The Shadow of the Dragon or DmC: Devil May Cry.
But much more happened that day: find out below..

You can also have a look at the whole 2013 or at July 13 across the years.
