The best memes of 2019

Christmas is the season to spread love and the New Year brings us an opportunity to reflect on the past year. It is the perfect time to think back and reflect on all the things we’re thankful for, all the things we’re lucky to have and all the little things that made us laugh and helped us get through the challenging year of 2019.

What better way to do that than by looking at the top 20 memes of 2019 (in no particular order).
