Friday May 20, 2016

US date format: 5/20/2016, UK date format: 20/5/2016

It was Friday, under the sign of Taurus (see birth chart on May 20, 2016). The US president was Barack Obama (Democrat), the UK Prime Minister was David Cameron (Conservative). In that special week of May people in US were listening to One Dance by Drake Featuring WizKid & Kyla. Me Before You, directed by Thea Sharrock, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2016 while Extreme Prey by John Sandford was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Wolf Creek. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Lego Worlds or Total War: Warhammer.
But much more happened that day: find out below..

You can also have a look at the whole 2016 or at May 20 across the years.
