2016 is almost over. A lot of people have gone on the record saying that 2016 has been the worst year in a long time. Statements like that are relative. I feel like my worst years are a tie between 1994 and 2007. In relation to the celebrities, there is no evidence that this is a bad year for celebrities but I think a lot assume that because of the caliber of celebrities passing away. David Bowie, Alan Rickman, Prince, Patty Duke, Carrie Fisher, Debbie Reynolds, among many others are A-list stars. Aside from the name recognition, the celebrities we, as Millennials or Gen-Xers, grew up with are entering their 60s, 70s, and even 80s. 2017 may be just as hard on our favorites as 2016, and 2018 may be worse. If you have a favorite celebrity who falls into this category, maybe write them a fan letter, email, Facebook post or tweet and let them know how positively they impacted your life.
