It was Saturday, under the sign of Capricorn (see birth chart on December 23, 2017). The US president was Donald John Trump (Republican). In that special week of December people in US were listening to Perfect by Ed Sheeran. The Greatest Showman, directed by Michael Gracey, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2017 while Obama: An Intimate Portrait by Pete Souza was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Happy Ending. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War III.
