Sunday July 17, 2016

US date format: 7/17/2016, UK date format: 17/7/2016

It was Sunday, under the sign of Cancer (see birth chart on July 17, 2016). The US president was Barack Obama (Democrat), the UK Prime Minister was Theresa May (Conservative). In that special week of July people in US were listening to One Dance by Drake Featuring WizKid & Kyla. Snowden, directed by Oliver Stone, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2016 while Me Before You by Jojo Moyes was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Wolf Creek. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Warhammer 40,000: Eternal Crusade or Lego Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
But much more happened that day: find out below..

You can also have a look at the whole 2016 or at July 17 across the years.
