It’s that time of the year again. Yes, it’s the holidays, but more importantly, it’s time for people to guess what’s going to happen in the new year other than failed resolutions. 

I’ve decided to join in on the fun and take a stab at six predictions for 2021.

To be fair, many of these “predictions” are already trends that were emerging in the latter parts of 2020, but with everything going on some of these could be part of a “new normal” that persists beyond 2021.

The year 2020 has been a bit of a doozy. I hope things get back to some resemblance or normalcy in 2021.

But whatever that new normal is, I think it’s going to look at least a little different than how things were pre-COVID. We’ll see 2021 goes, though, and I’ll check back this time next year to grade my forecasts!
