Did 2012 live up to expectations?


AS we enter 2013 and ponder what lies ahead, it’s worth turning the clock back a year to recollect what our thoughts and aspirations were as we stood on the threshold of the year just gone.

It turned out to be a tough year in many ways for lots of people but there were some dazzling hightlights which made it one to remember, too.

Here’s the leader I wrote for The Sun on December 31, 2011. Happy New Year!

Roll on 2012.

MANY of us will be glad to see the back of 2011 when the clock strikes midnight.

The past twelve months have been tough — and things won’t get much easier in the year ahead.

But amid the economic gloom, there’s much to look forward to in 2012. Tomorrow is the start of Olympics year, when we can show the world just how great Britain is.

The Sun will be a major cheerleader for both athletes and nation as the countdown to the London games begins.

There’s also a double bank holiday coming up to celebrate the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee in June.

And to cap an action-packed summer, England’s football aces will be fighting for glory in Euro 2012.

But if you just want to escape, you can always book a £9.50 Sun holiday when the offer returns next week.

We wish our loyal army of readers, distributors, newsagents and delivery teams every happiness in 2012.

So tonight, let the good times roll and have a Happy New Year.
