Hey you! Don’t give up on 2016 just yet

The nights are getting darker, the pound is getting weaker and now Donald Trump is the President of the United States.

But don’t worry, it’s nearly 2017 and it can only go up.

Here are five reasons why you shouldn’t curl up under your duvet and hibernate for the rest of 2016.

1) The Great British Bake Off is back in our lives

Everyone’s favourite quintessentially British cooking show is back for two Christmas specials this December.

Bring on the figgy pudding Mary!

2) The new Stars Wars film is out next month

Get your latest fix of the epic saga on December 15.

The force is with us!

3) Andy Murray is world number one

Proving that not all leaders in their field are prats, everyone’s favourite Scot is going from strength to strength.

Ace work Andy!

4) The John Lewis Christmas advert is out on Friday

Whether it makes you laugh or cry, it will take your mind off Brexit and Trump.

Just make sure you tag the right John Lewis in your tweets. Not this one. Or this one!

5) And if all else fails, you can go live in Space

There is still the chance to become a citizen of the ‘first ever space nation’ – Asgardia.

Named after Asgard, the city in the skies in ancient Norse mythology, Asgardia will offer ‘an independent platform free from the constraint of a land-based country’s laws’.
