Thursday April 16, 2015

US date format: 4/16/2015, UK date format: 16/4/2015

It was Thursday, under the sign of Aries (see birth chart on April 16, 2015). The US president was Barack Obama (Democrat), the UK Prime Minister was David Cameron (Conservative). In that special week of April people in US were listening to Uptown Funk! by Mark Ronson Featuring Bruno Mars. Beautiful Something, directed by Joseph Graham, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2015 while The Shadows by J.R. Ward was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Safe House. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Chaos Reborn or Just Dance: Disney Party 2.
But much more happened that day: find out below..

You can also have a look at the whole 2015 or at April 16 across the years.
