Wednesday February 15, 2012

US date format: 2/15/2012, UK date format: 15/2/2012

It was Wednesday, under the sign of Aquarius (see birth chart on February 15, 2012). The US president was Barack Obama (Democrat), the UK Prime Minister was David Cameron (Conservative), Pope Benedict XVI was leading the Catholic Church. In that special week of February people in US were listening to Stronger (What Doesn't Kill You) by Kelly Clarkson. John Carter, directed by Andrew Stanton, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2012 while Defending Jacob by William Landay was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Die Chefin. If you liked videogames you were probably playing The Basement Collection or Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair.
But much more happened that day: find out below..

You can also have a look at the whole 2012 or at February 15 across the years.
