To end 2020 we have another real life appointment that has become virtual due to the pandemic. The New Year’s Eve fireworks were canceled last August but we must somehow mark the arrival of 2021. Especially since we are all fed up with 2020.
The London Eye from 4 pm tomorrow will show us on its social media (Facebook, Instagram and Twitter) a light show. To avoid crowds this show was recorded earlier, so tomorrow the famous London panoramic wheel will be quiet and dark. But you can pretend that everything is normal and that you are at the Embankment in London to celebrate the arrival of the new year for three minutes. Or something like that.
The three-minute show will remind us of the major events of the year, from blue lights to remember Clap for Our Carers, a succession of white lights to honor Captain Sir Tom Moore and his NHS fundraising efforts, many colors to represent Global Pride, a green and blue design to meditate on climate change. When the lights go out, it’s all about Black Lives Matter and the need to continue the discussion on equality.
