The year 2020 proved itself one to remember from early on. However, is it a year we really want to reflect on? The Giant 2020 Crossword gives us a chance to look back over the year from hell before consigning it to history.
2020 started badly with bushfires raging across Australia. Then, even before the embers died out, the COVID-19 pandemic came rolling in and changed our lives forever.
Although Australian governments responded with uncharacteristic commonsense, Covidiots cropped up from other walks of life. Lorna Jane attempted to sell activewear that supposedly shielded wearers against the virus. Pete Evans marketed a $15,000 ‘lava lamp’. Margaret Court’s church promised the ‘blood of Jesus’ would protect against the disease.
Naturally, Donald Trump provided never-ending entertainment along with unremitting despair. Anyway, see what you remember of the year that was in our Giant 2020 Crossword.
We’ll post a few more clues after the Giant 2020 Crossword to help with a few of the trickier answers.
