US date format: 2/24/2016, UK date format: 24/2/2016

It was Wednesday, under the sign of Pisces (see birth chart on February 24, 2016). The US president was Barack Obama (Democrat). In that special week of February people in US were listening to Love Yourself by Justin Bieber. Accidentally Engaged, directed by Letia Clouston, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2016 while When Breath Becomes Air by Paul Kalanithi was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Born This Way. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Lego Star Wars: The Force Awakens or Warhammer 40,000: Eternal Crusade.
But much more happened that day: find out below..
