US date format: 7/26/2016, UK date format: 26/7/2016

It was Tuesday, under the sign of Leo (see birth chart on July 26, 2016). The US president was Barack Obama (Democrat), the UK Prime Minister was Theresa May (Conservative), Pope Francis was leading the Catholic Church. In that special week of July people in US were listening to One Dance by Drake Featuring WizKid & Kyla. Suicide Squad, directed by David Ayer, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2016 while The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Wolf Creek. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Lego Marvel's Avengers or Lego Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
