The Month You Married Dec 2005 Marilyn Manson Marries and More

Christmas approaches, but it's not quite here yet and we're more interested in looking back than looking forward! It's been a crazy ten years since December 2005, but we've prepped the time machine ready for a trip back to all the major events and celeb gossip that the month had to offer.

The month began dramatically with explosions at Buncefield fuel depot in the UK resulting in the biggest fire ever recorded in peacetime Europe. Thing were no better elsewhere in the world, with a plane crash in Tehran costing 128 lives. 5th December saw the testimony of the first witness in the trial of Saddam Hussein, and revelations of shocking torture.

Culture benefited from the discovery of the oldest known Mayan mural, thought to have been created around 100 BC. In music, Mariah Carey held the US Christmas number one with Don't Forget About Us. Singer Chris Brown dominated the charts for the rest of the month with Run It!, a retrospective highlight in a career eventually defined by dark revelations about Brown's personal life in 2009. In television, Oprah Winfrey appeared on The Late Show with David Letterman, her first on-air meeting with the host in sixteen years.

December 2005 saw perhaps the biggest goth wedding ever, as freaky singer Marilyn Manson married burlesque superstar Dita Von Teese. Both remain household names, though we're betting that one gets Googled a little more often than the other. A slightly more conventional affair celebrated the marriage of Matt Damon and Luciana Barroso. Actor Damon is famous from roles in films such as The Bourne Identity, Ocean's Eleven and The Martian, but actually met Barroso on the set of cringey comedy Stuck on You. December 2005 also saw the wedding of One Tree Hill star Bethany Joy Lenz to beau Michael Galeotti.

Of course it wasn't all hugs and kisses. Moustachioed comedian Steve Harvey, famous for his hosting of Family Feud, split from wife Mary Lee Shackelford. Actor and travel writer Andrew McCarthy broke it off with college sweetheart Carol Schneider, while actress and singer Juliette Lewis ended things with husband Stephen Berra.

That was December 2005. What a year! Join us next month for another decade-long dive back
