Since the beginning of 2021, I’ve heard people yelling, seen memes, and even posts of “Jumanji”, and I finally found out why!
In the original movie “Jumanji”, starring Robin Williams, a couple of kids find the game “Jumanji” and start to play without realizing what will happen in real life. As they encounter each outlandish destructive situation, it happens in real life too. Kinda like 2020. Remember we had, wildfires in Australia, murder hornets, a global pandemic, and I won’t go on. In the game, when each player reaches the end they yell “Jumanji” and life goes back to normal.
So in an effort to fix everything, the internet has decided we should yell “Jumanji” to start 2021 to return our lives back to normal and end the “game of 2020″.
