Saturday August 22, 2015

US date format: 8/22/2015, UK date format: 22/8/2015

It was Saturday, under the sign of Leo (see birth chart on August 22, 2015). The US president was Barack Obama (Democrat), the UK Prime Minister was David Cameron (Conservative). In that special week of August people in US were listening to Can't Feel My Face by The Weeknd. Room, directed by Lenny Abrahamson, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2015 while Plunder And Deceit by Mark R. Levin was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Love Island. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Evoland 2 or Dragon Quest Heroes: The World Tree's Woe and the Blight Below.
But much more happened that day: find out below..

You can also have a look at the whole 2015 or at August 22 across the years.
