What's Trending?

A trend is something that’s popular for a short period of time. For example, wraparound sunglasses were trendy in the 1980s. A decade later, kids begged their parents for Furbies and Tamogotchis. (Never heard of these toys? Trust us. They were huge.) In recent years, bubble tea has been all the rage. Fashion, toy, and food trends come and go. One thing’s for sure: Trends are fun for journalists to write about.
