US date format: 12/15/2016, UK date format: 15/12/2016

It was Thursday, under the sign of Sagittarius (see birth chart on December 15, 2016). The US president was Barack Obama (Democrat). In that special week of December people in US were listening to Black Beatles by Rae Sremmurd Featuring Gucci Mane. Monster Trucks, directed by Chris Wedge, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2016 while The Undoing Project: A Friendship That Changed Our Minds by Michael Lewis was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching White Rabbit Project. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Battlefleet Gothic: Armada or Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2.
But much more happened that day: find out below..
