Friday February 26, 2016

US date format: 2/26/2016, UK date format: 26/2/2016

It was Friday, under the sign of Pisces (see birth chart on February 26, 2016). The US president was Barack Obama (Democrat), the UK Prime Minister was David Cameron (Conservative). 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 Calamity by Brandon Sanderson was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Born This Way. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Lego Worlds or Battlefleet Gothic: Armada.
But much more happened that day: find out below..
