The last two years were quite difficult for the whole world as the COVID-19 pandemic wreaked havoc in people’s lives but the things improved considerably in the second part of 2021. In fact in the past few months, people lived in a normal manner to some extent and they not only visited tourist places but also attended weddings and social functions, having some great time with their loved ones which was something they had been missing for some time. Many of us were also hoping to celebrate the New Year’s Eve in a grand manner as for the majority of the last two years, we had no option other than remaining locked inside our houses because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
When everyone felt that we have defeated COVID-19 and once again we are going to live a normal life, the lethal virus made a comeback and this time its new variant Omicron is spreading at the faster pace than the earlier variants. Needless to say, people’s hopes of celebrating the new year with a bang got thrashed as the number of COVID-19 positive cases started increasing once again and many states imposed restrictions such as night curfew, 50 percent attendance in functions, etc.
The New Year celebrations were called off and people had to shift their focus on television and digital platforms for entertainment. In such a situation, online users once again used the social media platforms to express their emotions through hilarious memes and jokes.
Here are some of the selected tweets that are pretty relatable:
Someone who had new year plans: Woh Omicron aa gya na, kahan hi jaayein
Me who had no new year plans: Woh Omicron aa gya na, kahan hi jaayein
