Tuesday April 18, 2017

US date format: 4/18/2017, UK date format: 18/4/2017

It was Tuesday, under the sign of Aries (see birth chart on April 18, 2017). The US president was Donald John Trump (Republican), the UK Prime Minister was Theresa May (Conservative). In that special week of April people in US were listening to Shape Of You by Ed Sheeran. The Pirates of Somalia, directed by Bryan Buckley, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2017 while The Burial Hour by Jeffery Deaver was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Dear White People. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War III.
But much more happened that day: find out below..
