Well, 2020 was a rough year for most of us.

But we're on the hunt for bright spots. Did you learn how to make bread? Did your family expand? Did you get a new job? Learn yoga? Meet someone new (somehow)? Did you simply hold it together? All reasons to celebrate.

MPR News did a feature covering people's very good news in a very bad year. If you're looking for a few examples of family triumphs or unexpected bright spots in the year, give it a read.
