Friday April 25, 2014

US date format: 4/25/2014, UK date format: 25/4/2014

It was Friday, under the sign of Taurus (see birth chart on April 25, 2014). The US president was Barack Obama (Democrat), the UK Prime Minister was David Cameron (Conservative). In that special week of April people in US were listening to Happy by Pharrell Williams. X-Men: Days of Future Past, directed by Bryan Singer, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2014 while By Its Cover by Donna Leon was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Maniac. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Gods Will Be Watching or Fatal Frame: Maiden of Black Water.
But much more happened that day: find out below..

You can also have a look at the whole 2014 or at April 25 across the years.
