Monday January 24, 2011

US date format: 1/24/2011, UK date format: 24/1/2011

It was Monday, under the sign of Aquarius (see birth chart on January 24, 2011). The US president was Barack Obama (Democrat), the UK Prime Minister was David Cameron (Conservative), Pope Benedict XVI was leading the Catholic Church. In that special week of January people in US were listening to Hold It Against Me by Britney Spears. Red State, directed by Kevin Smith, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2011 while Cleopatra by Stacy Schiff was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching The Green Hornet. If you liked videogames you were probably playing 1000 Heroz or The Big Ben Burglary.
But much more happened that day: find out below..

You can also have a look at the whole 2011 or at January 24 across the years.
