Best thing about 2021, only wrong answers

2021 was a truly memorable year and here are your highlights. Or should it be lowlights?

Hi, this is Twixmas and I have foolishly chosen to work instead of booking this week off to enjoy a full Christmas and New Year’s Eve. So instead of trying my hand at serious journalism, I went out and asked Secret London’s Facebook followers a simple question: “what was the best thing about 2021? Only wrong answers …”.

As usual, you provided a whole host of witty, clever and funny answers, and – once we had filtered everyone out that contained the word ‘Boris’, to try political neutrality – we were left with some crackling results. Without further ado, please enjoy the best things by 2021, only wrong answers …

(It’s called schadenfreude, folks, so let’s all laugh before we cry)

The best things by 2021

Just makes any commute brighter, right?

“To be able to go home to Australia to see my family whenever I want!”

You just never know where you will pick up all the useful life skills.

4. “The security of everything”

5. “Already snowing!”

London’s white Christmas really did everything magical, I think.

“To be able to book a flight with a moment’s notice and fly away.”

You’ll not exactly forget words like ‘Delta’ and ‘Omicron’ in a hurry, will you?

8. “Being able to get so close and hug everyone without masks”

I’ve never been so familiar with my nostrils …

11. “The totally stress-free week before I have to see my family for the holidays!”

Well, we needed a new national sport as football is being canceled and the ashes are not exactly a competition …

12. “Live music”

13. “Homeschooling!”

Honestly, if you managed to homeschool yourself through the 2021 lockdown, you deserve a medal.

14. “I’m so impressed with how smooth everything has gone!”

15. “Positivity”

A really good job we have done to make everyone optimistic through this year!

16. “All the trips abroad I have enjoyed”

17. โ€œI have not had any worries about toilet paper. The supply has been endless. โ€


Do you remember the bad old days in March 2020? Yes, this one is definitely a win.

18. “It went lightning fast”

19. “England are European champions … ups”

This, certainly from an Italian. TOO SOON MATTEO, TOO SOON.

21. “Have so much time at home to achieve a spotlessly clean house.”

And finally, our winner of this little competition …

23. “It replaced 2020”

No matter how your year went, we at Secret London wish you all a healthier, happier and better year in 2022.
