Much of the year 2020 was spent at home because of fear of contracting the dreaded coronavirus. That said, a lot of plans – for leisure, family, work, and even business – have been put off for a while.
And with the promise of a vaccine that can hopefully help restore things back to normal expected to be completely rolled out soon in most countries, people are once again hopeful and expectant that life will go back to the way it used to. And with it, renewed hopes and plans for the future are being made once again, for 2021.
