Want to see the most fitting trending topics list you’ve ever encountered? Keep reading.

2020 was the year of take out and outdoor dining, finding things to do that *weren’t* cancelled, hiking and enjoying the outdoors, masks, welcoming new fur babies to the fam, and driving around in your car for entertainment. TBH we’re pretty surprised with the lack of alcohol-related content on this list.

Oh and you can’t forget that leveled up meme/tweet/TikTok culture thanks to quarantine.

This list consists of any and all articles and guides that had the most pageviews this year. While some topics are very 2020, several of the articles on this list are oldies but goodies, meaning they were published previous to this doozy-of-a-year and became more relevant than ever, with the oldest post originally published in 2015 (!).

TBT to last year’s top trending topics article when we said (read: jinxed the world), “While we are looking forward to what 2020 has in store, we can’t forget the amazing things that have happened in Buffalo this year, (eh em, the Bills making the playoffs).” Our bad. Go Bills though!

To 2021 we say: Bring it on. What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger.
