Quiz: How much do you know about 2022?

Nothing? Ah you must know something.

IT IS ALMOST time to welcome another year.

That means it’s also time to dust off your crystal ball, the antique one that lies sitting in a dusty corner of your attic. You’ve been warned time and time again that it is cursed,  you must not use it, that nothing good will ever come from it.

But yet, every year, you are drawn to it. The urge to score 10/10 on The Journal’s quiz about the coming year is simply too great. You can’t overcome it. You make peace with your god, remind your family how much you love them, and head up to the attic.

Gaze into the glass, see what lies ahead, and answer the following questions.
