Nothing was business as usual in 2020. It was a tough year. Millions of people lost their jobs. Thousands of businesses closed. Working from home became part of life, homes turned into schools, and "please unmute yourself" became part of everyday conversation.
But challenges can present opportunities. 2020 allowed more time to bond with family and provided the space to learn new skills and think outside the box to adapt and grow. It also gave people more time to take stock of their lives and figure out what really matters.
We have seen how hard it is to get anyone to agree on anything these days. Except this: The best part of 2020 is that it's over. Before we turn the page, let's remember the stories that made us think, laugh and look forward to better days ahead.
Editor's note: This top 10 list has more than 10 stories. Since 2020 was like no other year we've ever experienced, this top 10 list will be like no other top 10 list you've ever experienced.
