Comments from our visitors about this date:


I was so hyped when Eder scored that goal. I remember that I had stepped outside for a cigarette and I was watching the game from the doorway when it went in. France were the favorites and Portugal hadn't won any major tournaments in a long time, so it was nice to see. Doesn't feel like 6 years ago!

Take me back to July 10, 2016

Let's take a stroll down memory lane.

It is Sunday, July 10, 2016. Anyone born today will have the star sign Cancer. People are currently enjoying their weekend. However, because it's a Sunday, some are dreading the days ahead.

The 4th of July celebrations in America have come and passed. The summer of 2016 is in full swing. The weather is warm, and the evenings are brighter than usual. Most schools and colleges are now finished until August or September. The song "One Dance" by Drake is at the top of the music charts in the United States and the United Kingdom.

Barack Obama is the President of the United States, and the movie The Secret Life of Pets is at the top of the box office. David Cameron is the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom. It's 2016, so the music charts are being dominated by artists such as Drake, Lukas Graham, Sia, Mike Posner, The Chainsmokers and Calvin Harris.

The 2016 UEFA European Football Championship is taking place in France. The killing of a gorilla called Harambe back in May continues to be a topic of conversation. Harambe has achieved a cult-like status, as memes and over-the-top tributes continue to be made in his memory. The UK has just voted to leave the European Union and Prime Minister David Cameron has resigned. The British Pound has tumbled to historic lows in the aftermath of the Brexit vote.

An augmented reality mobile game called Pokémon GO has recently been released. The game is rapidly rising in popularity. If you were to travel back to this day, notable figures such as Fidel Castro, Big Syke, George Michael, and Carrie Fisher would all still be alive. On TV, people are watching popular shows such as "Modern Family", "Line of Duty", "Better Call Saul", and "Lucifer".

Meanwhile, gamers are playing titles such as "Batman: Arkham Knight", "FIFA 16", "Just Cause 3", and "Pokemon Go". Children and teenagers are watching television shows such as "Pretty Little Liars", "Liv and Maddie", "Nicky, Ricky, Dicky & Dawn", and "The Loud House". Popular toys at the moment include the PlayStation 4, Crayola Paint Maker, Simon Swipe, and Bright Beats Dance & Move BeatBo.
