Tuesday February 17, 2015

US date format: 2/17/2015, UK date format: 17/2/2015

It was Tuesday, under the sign of Aquarius (see birth chart on February 17, 2015). The US president was Barack Obama (Democrat), the UK Prime Minister was David Cameron (Conservative). In that special week of February people in US were listening to Uptown Funk! by Mark Ronson Featuring Bruno Mars. Parallels, directed by Christopher Leone, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2015 while The Brain'S Way Of Healing by Norman Doidge was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching X Company. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Gal*Gun: Double Peace or Danganronpa: Unlimited Battle.
But much more happened that day: find out below..

You can also have a look at the whole 2015 or at February 17 across the years.
