Saturday January 24, 2009

US date format: 1/24/2009, UK date format: 24/1/2009

It was Saturday, under the sign of Aquarius (see birth chart on January 24, 2009). The US president was Barack Obama (Democrat), the UK Prime Minister was Gordon Brown (Labour), Pope Benedict XVI was leading the Catholic Church. In that special week of January people in US were listening to Just Dance by Lady GaGa. Coraline, directed by Henry Selick, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2009 while New Moon by Stephenie Meyer was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Trust Me. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Ben 10 Alien Force: Vilgax Attacks or Colin McRae: Dirt 2.
But much more happened that day: find out below..

You can also have a look at the whole 2009 or at January 24 across the years.
