January: seen by many as the most depressing month in the calendar – Christmas is over, it’s cold, dark and summer isn’t anywhere in sight. But, although it may seem like all hope is lost during those freezing initial 31 days of the year, we’re here to tell you that it’s not. 2018 is fully ahead of us, and it’s packed with loads of dates to get in your figurative diary.

Hold on tight, because if this list is anything to go by, this year’s going to be a good one. Here’s why:

The World Cup

Sweepstake fans rejoice! It’s been a whole four years since the last World Cup took place – time flies when you’re having fun, eh? 2014 saw Germany take the title as the world’s best squad after a month-long competition held in 12 different Brazilian cities. This year, Russia will host the 21st FIFA World Cup, with the final being held in Moscow on 15th July.

Make sure to keep your evenings and weekends free, or even save up your holidays and take the whole month off, because this is something that you’re not going to want to miss. Who knows, England might even make it past the first knockout round. Crazier things have happened.
