Michelle Obama is undoubtedly one of the most charismatic personalities out there. Whether it is fashion or her liking in music, Obama has always been good at following the trends. But in 2019 she finally learned one thing that she always wanted to.

In an interview with People, the former First Lady of the U.S. revealed that this year she learned to play the game of “Cornhole,” which is considered to be one of the favorite games of many people in the country.

When asked what is that one new thing that she learned this year, Obama, who is one of the People of the Year 2019 recipients, revealed that she learned to play the game and she knows that it is a sin for a Midwesterner like her to learn the game this “late.”

“I learned to play Cornhole. I know, it is a sacrilege for a Midwesterner to learn this late in life,” Obama shared.

For the uninitiated, Cornhole is a lawn game in which players throw bags of dried kennels of maize at a platform with a hole in the far end. If the bag gets inside the hole, the player gets 3 points.

It is believed that the game originated in Germany in the 14th century while gaining popularity in Kentucky over 100 years ago. Even now, Cornhole is considered to be a great activity for a family outing.

Obama, who joins Jennifer Lopez, Jennifer Aniston and Taylor Swift as the recipient of the 2019 People of the Year award, had a great year. The publication decided to choose her as one of the awardees because she became the best-selling memoirist of all time. Her book “Becoming” sold over 11 million copies till last month, and the audio version of the book has been nominated for a Grammy.

“In a Gallup survey, Mrs. Obama was named the most admired woman in the world, and it’s no wonder since she continues to do so much work to improve girls’ education,” the statement read.

Recently, Obama shared an endearing family photo on Thanksgiving. In the snap, the whole family – Michelle, Barack Obama, Sasha and Malia Ann – could be seen standing in front of a picturesque background while wishing “Happy Thanksgiving” to everyone on social media.

The snap was met with tremendous response and people showered the picture with some amazing comments.

Here are some Twitter reactions:
