The Brief: Internet users are reacting to the first days into the year as part of 2021 memes.
2021 came in HOT! Many hoped when the clock struck 11:59:59 on Dec. 31, 2020, we would be on the verge of a happier, healthier, safer year. If the past two weeks has been any indication, 2021 had other plans. In the time since counting down and toasting champagne glasses to our family members over Zoom, we’ve seen peaking numbers of COVID cases, Trump inciting a riot at the US Capitol, impeachment proceedings, and so much more.
2020: I’m the weirdest year ever!
2021: Can I interest you in three presidents by the end of January

2020: Covid-19 pandemic😷
2021: Azealia Banks ate her dead cat😿

Others considered the past few days a continuation of 2020.
Some think the God may have just forgotten about us.
