Did you know that Pantone gives every calendar year a color? Last year was Viva Magenta, and this year, 2024, is represented by the peach fuzz color. It is a light, delicate color sitting between pink and orange and represents our desire to be close to those we love and the joy we get when allowing ourselves to tune into who we are and savor that moment of quiet time. As we celebrate this year’s color and incorporate it into our homes, below are monumental global events to look out for this year.
The total solar eclipse
Solar eclipses have often been surrounded by cultural and historical significance in various societies throughout history, and many ancient civilizations, such as the Greeks and the Chinese, developed myths and stories to explain the occurrence of eclipses. A total solar eclipse is a rare event that occurs when the moon passes between the Earth and the sun, completely blocks the sun’s face, and casts its shadow on the Earth’s surface. Though it occurs for just a few minutes, it is a natural event that provides a unique and memorable experience for those fortunate enough to witness it. This year, on April 8, some parts of Mexico, the United States, and Canada will experience a total solar eclipse.
Olympics and Paralympics
The Olympics and Paralympics are held every four years and attract athletes from around the world. The Olympics are open to able-bodied athletes who participate in different sports like soccer, basketball, swimming, gymnastics, and athletics, among others. The Paralympics are designed for people with intellectual, visual, and physical impairments. The Olympic games are set to take place from July 26 to August 11, and then the Paralympics from August 28 to September 8. This year, games are special as breakdancing will be added to the sports category, and the number of women and men athletes will be the same. As you propose to attend and cheer your team, do not forget to get some hair removal wax to get that clean armpit.
A return to the moon
After 52 years, NASA has finally announced that it will be sending people to the moon this year. NASA Artemis 2 moon mission is tailored towards scientific discoveries, economic benefits, and an inspiration to a new generation of explorers. With the technological advancements, NASA has partnered with international collaboration to send people to the moon to test technologies that can take us to Mars, find the possibilities of setting up a lab on the moon, and explore the lunar resources. This is definitely an event with great anticipation as it may be the second successful mission to the moon after the successful Apollo 11 mission.
UEFA EURO 2024
The three-time winner, Germany, will host the UEFA EURO 2024 in different cities like Berlin, Cologne, and Dortmund, among others. Hosting the EURO tournament can have significant economic, cultural, and infrastructural impacts on the host country as it provides an opportunity to showcase the nation’s hospitality, infrastructure, and football culture. This is a season of excitement that football fans eagerly anticipate as the tournaments attract a global audience and showcase high-level football, dramatic moments, and intense rivalries.
