US date format: 5/20/2015, UK date format: 20/5/2015

It was Wednesday, under the sign of Taurus (see birth chart on May 20, 2015). The US president was Barack Obama (Democrat). In that special week of May people in US were listening to See You Again by Wiz Khalifa Featuring Charlie Puth. Growing Up Smith, directed by Frank Lotito, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2015 while The Road To Character by David Brooks was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Safe House. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Fast Racing Neo or FIFA 16.
But much more happened that day: find out below..
