Welcome everyone to my eighth year of counting sneezes! Luckily for me, sneezing is not a symptom of Coronavirus, so as long as I covered my mouth when I did it, no one had an issue with my above-average bodily function!
Anyway, onto the 2020 sneeze count stats.
With a grand total of 1713 sneezes in 2020, I did sneeze less than last year, but this is not my all-time lowest. Due to the way the weeks align (as I start week counts on Mondays) and the Leap Day, 2020’s count covers 371 days.
I’d be remiss if I didn’t mention the pandemic when looking at these stats. There’s no guarantee or proof that it really affected that much in terms of my numbers, but I do know that I am prone to a sneeze or three when in sunlight, and due to the lockdowns, I didn’t go outside nearly as much this past year, so there’s a chance I’d have higher numbers because of that or because of perhaps not seeing friends with pets as much.
In other sneezy news, a thing I did this year was combine all my bar graphs into one mega sneeze count chart. Because I had years of data already made, it took me a while to find software that would let me import it all in the way I had it arranged, but I manage to find Venngage, and now I have this that I can add to every year!
As always, thank you for putting up with my weird hobby once a year. In case you haven’t noticed by now, I do this all mostly to amuse myself, as I really do find these stats and graphs deeply fascinating, and I just love looking at all the years in one chart like this. But I know many of you also enjoy it so I’m happy to share, and I hope this brought a smile to your face, even if it may have likely been accompanied by an eye roll.
That’s all for now!
