What to Look Forward to in 2022!
2020 and 2021 have both been years that we will be sure to quickly forget. It's time to shrug those two under the carpet and look forward to 2022 - and there is a lot!
I think we can all agree that 2021 proved to be challenging to all of us in one way or another. It is as if the two have merged to form one continuous string of bad luck. Nonetheless, the new year is past us, and 2022 is ahead of us, and with it come events that are sure to make it a year that stands out from the rest. Here is our list of the top 5 things to look forward to in 2022!
1) The 2022 FIFA World Cup
If you’re a football fan, you are getting spoilt in 2022, as the FIFA World Cup begins in Qatar, just one year after UEFA Euro 2020, which was postponed to 2021. Thirty-two teams from across the world will compete for the title later this year across eight stadiums in the country. Despite the various accusations surrounding the host, the tournament is sure to bring the world together for a great end to the year. The World Cup will begin on the 21st of November and finish on the 18th of December, which might be a smart decision as temperatures in the summer can rise to 43 degrees Celsius!
2) The Queens Platinum Jubilee
Here in the UK, the Queen will celebrate her 70th year on the throne, marking her Platinum Jubilee. The day will be broadcast live worldwide, and various celebrations will take place in multiple countries that still hold the monarchy as head of state. We will also gain a new bank holiday, meaning that everyone will get a new day off from work each year. The UK has various bank holidays throughout the year, and these kinds of events add more to the total. I am sure to feel the celebrations in London as Pubs will stay open for longer and parties will go on late into the night. It’s going to be real fun.
3) 22 seconds past 22:22, on the 22nd of February 2022
This is the one that stands out from the rest of the list. This will be the last time in our lives that we will pass a time and date aligned in such a unique way. This will occur at 22 seconds past 22:22, on the 22nd of February 2022 – 22:22:22, 22/2/22. The last time this happened was at 11 seconds past 11:11, on the 11th of November 2011 – 11:11:11, 11/11/11. This is also the last time this happens in the next 100 years, as the next time the numbers will align is in 2111, with the return of 11:11:11, 11/11/11. If you find yourself with nothing to do on the 22nd of February, why not celebrate the passing of this unique time in history with us!
4) Elton John’s ‘Farewell Yellow Brick Road’ Tour
After various postponed dates due to the pandemic and personal health issues, Elton John will continue his ‘Farewell Yellow Brick Road’ tour. The 74-year-old music legend has announced that he will tour the world one last time before stepping out of the spotlight. Tickets have been selling fast, and audiences are ready to attend the concerts in their masses. Whether at the arena or home, the whole world is sure to sing along and bear him farewell.
5) Making 2022 a Year You Remember.
The most important thing you should be looking forward to in 2022 is whatever makes you happy. We will all have our ups and downs throughout the year, but those highs make the lows tolerable. Surround yourself with the people you love and do the things that make you all happy – If you follow those two rules, I am sure that you’ll make 2022 a year you look forward to.
