Thursday March 20, 2014

US date format: 3/20/2014, UK date format: 20/3/2014

It was Thursday, under the sign of Pisces (see birth chart on March 20, 2014). The US president was Barack Obama (Democrat), the UK Prime Minister was David Cameron (Conservative). In that special week of March people in US were listening to Happy by Pharrell Williams. Frontera, directed by Michael Berry, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2014 while One More Thing by B. J. Novak was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Killing Spree. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Puyo Puyo Tetris or Age of Wonders III.
But much more happened that day: find out below..

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