      February 9, 2017

      One year. 365 days. 52 Fridays.

      That’s all that remains on the countdown clock to the Opening Ceremony of PyeongChang 2018.

      The next time the calendar rolls around to February 9, the XXIII Olympic Winter Games will officially begin. And you’re going to need an alarm clock.

If you’re on the west coast, you may just want to stay up all night with the party starting at 3am.

      So to get you set, here’s some fun facts about the 23rd edition (yes, that’s what the roman numerals say) of the Olympic Winter Games!
