Friday June 20, 2014

US date format: 6/20/2014, UK date format: 20/6/2014

It was Friday, under the sign of Gemini (see birth chart on June 20, 2014). The US president was Barack Obama (Democrat), the UK Prime Minister was David Cameron (Conservative). In that special week of June people in US were listening to Fancy by Iggy Azalea Featuring Charli XCX. Asthma, directed by Jake Hoffman, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2014 while Oh, the Places You'll Go! by Dr. Seuss was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Girl Meets World. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Consortium or Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze.
But much more happened that day: find out below..

You can also have a look at the whole 2014 or at June 20 across the years.
