Top 95 Pop Culture Trends in December

From Cartoon-Themed Loungewear to Witty Millennial Life Kits

— December 28, 2019 — Pop Culture
Ranging from dynamic actress-branded eyewear to meme-inspired holiday apparel, the December 2019 pop culture trends provide a broad view of where consumer interests are headed.

In anticipation of the holiday season, it should come as no surprise that many of the December 2019 pop culture trends are geared towards Christmas. For example, the 'Woman Yelling at a Cat' holiday sweater celebrates niche Internet culture. As its name suggests, the sweater features the near-iconic image of a reality star being held back while yelling and the picture of a confused cat on the receiving end. It showcases how pop culture can become a medium for profit.

Another example includes the Digital Family Festive Movie Advent Calendar that gives HD Digital Movie Codes that can be used to download and keep classic family movies.
