It’s here. Can you feel it? 


It was imperceptible at first, I grant you, the mere corners of a Mona Lisa smile. And then yesterday, with the news a vaccine could be on the horizon, it was undeniable any longer. Hope is here. The glimmer of something better. An inkling that, after 2020’s damp squib, 2021 could be a better year.


We’re very much aware that the business of news rarely brings joy. Every weekend, as we try to find a positive story to end our weekly news update on, we relent the absence of genuine cheer.


But behind the wall-to-wall election coverage over the last week, a lot was happening – and much of it has been genuinely smile-inducing. So, in a break from our usual programming, here are all our reasons to be cheerful this week.
