meme definition

What is a meme?

Merriam Webster’s Dictonary defines a meme as, “an idea, behavior, style, or usage that spreads from person to person within a culture” or “ an amusing or interesting item (such as a captioned picture or video) or genre of items that is spread widely online especially through social media.”

Basically, a meme is a form of reference humor using captioned pictures and short videos. Memes are generally found online and on social media platforms.

The Thanksgiving holiday is largely based around getting together with lots of relatives and being grateful for family and loved ones. But sometimes family members can be difficult to be around, causing drama and stress during these big family get togethers. Relatives aside, Thanksgiving can also be stressful because of all there is to do! There’s so much cooking and cleaning involved in this kitchen and food centric holiday.

Whether you need a break from people or from the dishes some well deserved meme scrolling can really get you laughing and ease tension. And who knows! Maybe you’ll be able to share a meme or two.
