Friday October 21, 2016

US date format: 10/21/2016, UK date format: 21/10/2016

It was Friday, under the sign of Libra (see birth chart on October 21, 2016). The US president was Barack Obama (Democrat), the UK Prime Minister was Theresa May (Conservative). In that special week of October people in US were listening to Closer by The Chainsmokers Featuring Halsey. Jack Reacher: Never Go Back, directed by Edward Zwick, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2016 while Small Great Things by Jodi Picoult was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Dead Silent. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Space Hulk: Deathwing 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 October 21 across the years.
