US date format: 3/16/2009, UK date format: 16/3/2009

It was Monday, under the sign of Pisces (see birth chart on March 16, 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 March people in US were listening to Right Round by Flo Rida. Love N' Dancing, directed by Robert Iscove, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2009 while The Associate by John Grisham was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Diplomatic Immunity. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Coraline or Christmas Clix.
But much more happened that day: find out below..

You can also have a look at the whole 2009 or at March 16 across the years.
