We hope no one expected 2021 to be a slower news year than the shitshow that was 2020. Because it wasn't.

Amid all the chaos, Current readers parsed our site for vital info on Texas' near-total abortion ban and the firing of a popular local TV news anchor who happens to share a name with an Egyptian goddess and superhero.

But it's also clear that folks craved something lighthearted, which explains why so many read a story on a local family winning ABC's Great Christmas Light Fight. Or why so many clicked on a piece about Tussaud's Waxworks removing its Trump figure because people just couldn't resist its punchable face.

Buckle up and get ready for a ride through the serious, the silly, the sad, the sublime and the strange that comprised the Current's biggest news stories of 2021.
