2020 has so far gone by in a blur. Shock, disbelief, frustration, disappointment, worry, intolerance, anger, resentment and every other emotion. I will definitely embrace Christmas earlier this year. A recent article encouraged the public to put the decs up earlier because it gave most people a mental 'lift'. It's what we need.

Like most people, this year has just sucked, but I keep reminding myself that everyone I know is still healthy and I haven't lost anyone to Covid, thank God.

I haven't minded 2020. It didn't bother me having to be in lockdown, did it in 2018 and 2019 due to my sons heart condition, so it was normal to me. I've gotten to spend more time with my husband, been able to finally sort out the house and whilst we did have to cancel our sons christening, we can easily have it at a later date and we have been lucky not to lose anyone. I honestly haven't found it that bad. I will not be getting ready for Christmas any earlier than normal. Christmas does not give me a mental lift and I never decorate for it anyway.

I know that there aren't many of them but I feel people should be looking at the good things that happened to them.

Mine was walking into a bank wearing a mask without being wrestled and pinned to the floor by security guards,

I wouldn't say enjoyed but have seen far more of my family as I was home alone once work finished. We did garden visits, they brought me shopping, did outside jobs etc.

Re your Merlin card, they should extend it. I had an Odeon limitless card for last Xmas and they have extended to end of June 21.

2020 has had its ups & downs. Losing loved ones during lockdown being the most difficult. I cannot say it's been the worst time of my life, certainly not note worthy either tho.

I feel guilty saying it, as I am aware that many people have had a terrible year so far for many reason, but it has been a good year for us. My daughter and her partner came to live with us for three months from April and it was a special time. They got engaged while they were here too!

My husband has been working from home for the last six months and that has been brilliant. I feel that we have been given a gift as a family and I am grateful.

It’s been so so. We have had some good opportunities this year, but lost out on others. We have learnt things also. 2020 has been a year not quite like any other

As horrible as this year has been I've seen some good come out of it much more of a sense of community and a friend who had a gambling addiction finally seems to have got to grips with it because bookmakers being closed.

A complete nightmare for me and screwed from all angles.

Firstly, the government did not help Ltd directors

Secondly, I shut my business

Thirdly, the job market is topsy-turvey

Fourthly, I am apparently too solvent to claim any help from the government

Apart from that, I have had a great time. Smashing it on the personal fitness levels with walking, yoga, and physical therapy. Done quite a lot around the house and in the garden. Established regular meet-ups with our immediate neighbours, which has been fun and supportive during Lockdown. (I have shared a lot of cake!).

I have a roof over my head and food on the table so I am thankful for small things.

Its been a horrible year, lost my job due to cuts (hospitality) my mental health went down hill and i ended up in hospital and now on UC but signed off sick with anxiety and depression. The father of my kids lost his job too, so money has been tight, home schooling was stressful with a 12 and a 9 year old, We both had our holidays cancelled. My son is miserable and hating school at the moment. Can't even bare to think about the next few months, just want this year done with ha
