Friday 31 December 2010, NewYear’s Eve

It was Friday, under the sign of Capricorn. The US president was Barack Obama (Democratic). In that special week of December people in US were listening to Firework by Katy Perry. TRON: Legacy, directed by Joseph Kosinski, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2010 while Unbroken by Laura Hillenbrand was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Veritasium. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Dragon Ball Z: Tenkaichi Tag Team or Cannon Cadets.
But much more happened that day: find out below..

You can also have a look at the whole 2010 or at December 31 across the years.
