A Glimpse into 2024

2024 is full of events contributing to a fun year!

Although 2023 was a hectic, yet fun-filled year, 2024 is growing to be even more exciting. This year is packed with entertaining events beginning with the Super Bowl, and continuing with the 2024 Paris Olympics. Alongside the fun events, important events are also taking place this year, such as the Presidential Election. 

First off, The NFL playoffs will soon begin leading up to the Super Bowl in Los Angeles on February 11th. It’s no secret that the famous game is highly enjoyed amongst Americans, and the anticipation for the game has already begun. This year, predictions for the win have been ranging amongst the 49ers, Chiefs, and the Eagles. 

Along with the Super Bowl, comes the infamous half-time performance. This year, Usher takes the stage as he will perform his top hits from his numerous albums, such as Confessions and My Way. Surprisingly, this isn’t Usher’s first half-time performance, as in 2011 he performed OMG alongside The Black Eyed Peas. 

As we continue into the fun-filled events of 2024, baseball opening day is happening a couple of months after the Super Bowl. Baseball opening day is one of the most anticipated days of the new year, for spring sports fans. 

Baseball opening day in March is a highly anticipated return for all Americans. As the winter season loosens up, teams start to emerge from offseason preparation to showcase their talents and determination on the diamond. The St. Louis Cardinals spring training begins bright and early on the 24th of February. Alongside spring training, the St. Louis Cardinals will have their first game on March 28th against the Los Angeles Dodgers.  

Once again, the Summer Olympics are back again for the 2024 season. The Summer Olympics captivated the world with a spectacular celebration of all countries coming together to show off their amazing achievements. 

Every year, these athletes travel around the globe to compete against their fiercest rivals, as they prepare for the Olympic Games. This year the 2024 Olympics will be taking place in Paris, and held at Stade de France. The Olympics has loads of events, but some of the most exciting ones to tune in and watch are gymnastics, swimming, and golf. Some predictions for the 2024 Olympic Games have already been talked about around the world. Lots of people have been saying that the United States will win the most overall medals, and take home the gold in this year’s Olympic Games. 

Following the Olympics, the United States Presidential Election will take place in November. Currently, the Democratic Party holds power, which is led by President Joe Biden, but soon he will be contested by the Republican Party. 

Over the summer, the Republican and Democratic National Convention will take place, in which each party will officially choose its nominee through a formal ceremony. Following the Conventions, the nominees will go head-to-head during televised Presidential debates, which will begin taking place in November.

Although 2024 has just begun, the year has so much in store for individuals throughout the world. The numerous events taking place will make for a hectic year, yet one filled with so much excitement and fun you’ll never want it to end!
