Heading to and from work in total darkness can bring down even the most chipper among us.

Even with vitamin D supplements and SAD lights to hand, the end of 2017 is causing many of us to look back on the not-so desirable year.

The last 365 days have hosted one of America's most deadly shootings, multiple terror attacks in the U.K - including at an Ariana Grande concert - multiple hurricanes that devastated countries and so much more.

Thankfully, despite all these tragic events, there were still many things to be happy about, and one Twitter user has collated some of them in the most delightful thread.

Last year, journalist Amy O'Connor made a thread of all her favourite moments of 2016, since it seemed to be such a rotten one. Somehow, this year trumped lasts (pun intended), and O'Connor felt moved to do it again.

She wrote yesterday, 'Last year, I compiled a list of my favourite moments of the year. Nice things that either made me laugh, warmed my heart or brought a little tear to my eye. 2017 was somehow worse than last year, so I'm doing this thread again! Settle in.'

The thread has thousands of likes and consists of 40 reasons to be extremely joyful.

Prepare to well up people, it's going to get emotional.

O'Connor also celebrated pregnancies and babies.

As well as Hollywood's slow but steady move towards diverse representation.

This year has certainly been a tough one, however, moments like these prove how much good there is out there too.
