Say what you will about 2020, but it's certainly been a year that none of us will ever forget — to put things as gently as possible. From mass toilet paper shortages to a massively contentious presidential election, the start of this decade has ushered in more than its fair share of historic events.

Considering the fact that many of us have been sheltering in place for months on end — distracted by a global health crisis and constantly bombarded with progressively demanding news stories — it’s easy to see why many of us are looking back on 2020 as one big blur. It’s been exactly that: a difficult, often-heartbreaking and sometimes-optimistic blur. But with all the big things that happened, it’s important to keep some perspective — if only on the bigger events. These are the stories that defined each month of what feels like the longest year we’ve ever been through.
