Thursday January 28, 2016

US date format: 1/28/2016, UK date format: 28/1/2016

It was Thursday, under the sign of Aquarius (see birth chart on January 28, 2016). The US president was Barack Obama (Democrat), the UK Prime Minister was David Cameron (Conservative), Pope Francis was leading the Catholic Church. In that special week of January people in US were listening to Sorry by Justin Bieber. The Choice, directed by Ross Katz, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2016 while The Revenant by Michael Punke was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Kaleidoscope. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 or Battlefleet Gothic: Armada.
But much more happened that day: find out below..
