Wednesday May 31, 2017

US date format: 5/31/2017, UK date format: 31/5/2017

It was Wednesday, under the sign of Gemini (see birth chart on May 31, 2017). The US president was Donald John Trump (Republican), the UK Prime Minister was Theresa May (Conservative). In that special week of May people in US were listening to Despacito by Luis Fonsi & Daddy Yankee Featuring Justin Bieber. Cars 3, directed by Brian Fee, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2017 while Everything, Everything by Nicola Yoon was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Love Connection. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War III.
But much more happened that day: find out below..
