Wednesday September 21, 2016

US date format: 9/21/2016, UK date format: 21/9/2016

It was Wednesday, under the sign of Virgo (see birth chart on September 21, 2016). The US president was Barack Obama (Democrat), the UK Prime Minister was Theresa May (Conservative). In that special week of September people in US were listening to Closer by The Chainsmokers Featuring Halsey. Zen Dog, directed by Rick Darge, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2016 while The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Speechless. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Lego Worlds or Lego Marvel's Avengers.
But much more happened that day: find out below..

You can also have a look at the whole 2016 or at September 21 across the years.
