US date format: 12/25/2017, UK date format: 25/12/2017

It was Monday, under the sign of Capricorn (see birth chart on December 25, 2017). The US president was Donald John Trump (Republican), the UK Prime Minister was Theresa May (Conservative). In that special week of December people in US were listening to Perfect by Ed Sheeran. Romper Stomper, directed by Geoffrey Wright, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2017 while Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Getaway by Jeff Kinney was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Hard Sun. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War III.
But much more happened that day: find out below..
