Mitt, missions, Jimmer, Jabari — 2012 ‘coolest’ Mormon moments

The country’s fascination with all things Mormon seems to have died down. Journalists are no longer showing up at weekly LDS services, eager to ask members about Kolob or funny underwear or how they feel about evangelicals.

In other words, the "Mormon moment" has slipped into the dark recesses of memory.

For those who want one last chance to revel in all that national and global attention, Buzzfeed has put together a list of "20 Reasons Why 2012 Was the Coolest Year to be a Mormon."

Many memorable moments — plus a couple of bonuses — are there: from rooting on Republican Mitt Romney in his White House chase to seeing singer David Archuleta become a Mormon missionary to viewing an old clip of one-time LDS teen Ryan Gosling performing at a church "road show."

So what’s missing from the list? What’s in your top 20?
