July 17th holidays

July 17th is the 198th day of the year in the Gregorian calendar. On this day, during the fourth Crusade, the siege of Constantinople begins and the 21st modern Olympic games in Montreal are boycotted by 25 African teams (later rising to 33 nations) due to New Zealand playing rugby in apartheid South Africa. Famous birthdays include Angela Merkel, Camilla Duchess of Cambridge, and Luke Bryan. Today is World Emoji Day.
