A summary of 2020 from A-Z

What a year. We may have said that too often – but really, so much has happened! So much that we could even compile this list of moments from a year we’ll never forget…

A

Australia
Yes, it was really this year that the wildfires continued to destruct. Our thoughts are still with those who were affected.

B

Bond
Delayed, delayed and delayed again. Will the Bond movie ever be released?

C

Caroline Flack
It feels like just yesterday we heard the heartbreaking news about Caroline’s passing.

D

Doorstep clapping
Never did we think we’d be stood on our doorsteps clapping for the NHS workers, but damn right do they deserve it – and a whole lot more.

E

Etsy
And the growth of supporting locals and independents.

F

Furlough
This word, many of us had never even heard of before, changed people’s lives.

G

George Floyd
A wake up call for many and the start of some very important discussions.

H

Hornets
The arrival of ‘murder’ hornets just added to the stressful year.

I

Impeached
A word we were all googling after the news of Donald Trump.

J

Joe Wicks
Saving 2020 one exercise class at a time.

K

Kobe Bryant
Another heartbreaking loss.

L

Lockdown
The less said about that the better.

M

Messages
We’ve not been able to see many of our loved ones this year so messaging has been more important than ever.

NHS
Our saviours.

O

Outdoors
And the appreciation of it when we were locked inside.

P

Pollution
And the lack of it when we were locked inside.

Q

Quarantine
Which many of us are still battling.

R

Royals
From Diana’s story being brought back to life on The Crown to Megan and Harry’s exit.

S

Staycations
And the quality time with loved ones they bring.

T

Tom Moore
A true hero.

U

Unprecedented
And its overuse.

V

Vaccine
The best news.

Weinstein
And his conviction.

X

SpaceX
Which has continued to amaze us.

YouTube
Many creatives have kept us entertained.

Zoom
And our addiction to it – whether its for work, quizzes or catch-ups.
