Wednesday July 26, 2017

US date format: 7/26/2017, UK date format: 26/7/2017

It was Wednesday, under the sign of Leo (see birth chart on July 26, 2017). The US president was Donald John Trump (Republican), the UK Prime Minister was Theresa May (Conservative). In that special week of July people in US were listening to Despacito by Luis Fonsi & Daddy Yankee Featuring Justin Bieber. Skybound, directed by Alex Tavakoli, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2017 while The Whistler by John Grisham was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching The Layover. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War III.
But much more happened that day: find out below..

You can also have a look at the whole 2017 or at July 26 across the years.
