2020 has officially ended... But what does 2021 have planned?
In short, who knows? I don't think any of us were expecting 2020 to be the year it was, and for many of us as long as 2021 is better we'll be happy.
But, for followers of Nostradamus, 2020 was just the beginning.
I can feel your excitement coursing through the screen already, and I'm yet to finish writing.
According to astrologers (and we all know how accurate they can be) the coronavirus pandemic was only the beginning of a series of misfortunes for humanity outlined by Nostradamus, which includes widespread famine (now might be a good time to revisit our article on no dig vegetable growing).
Nostradamus said: “After great trouble for humanity, a greater one is prepared. The Great Mover renews the ages: Rain, blood, milk, famine, steel, and plague, Is the heavens fire seen, a long spark running.”
So having already checked off the plague and with food shortages being predicted by some as a result of Brexit it seems most likely that famine is next. On the bright-side, it will help to shift some of those excess pounds we've all put on due to a year of doing little more than sitting and eating.
Other exciting predictions include major earthquakes, the rising of the seas and - this is the one we've all been preparing for - the zombie apocalypse. You can read more about what Nostradamus predicts for 2021 here.
So as I sign off and bid you all a happy new year, know that I'll be spending my last few hours of 2020 figuring out how to seal up Conwy town.
