Was 2016 the Worst Year Ever?
This is What's Trending Today.
The year 2016 is soon coming to an end.
People on social media are looking back on the year. Many are saying 2016 was one of the worst years in recent memory.
Television personality John Oliver, for example, spent much of his final show of the year discussing how bad the last 12 months were.
He said, "Let's face it: 2016 has been one calamity after another."
He showed images of the Brexit campaign, migrants in Europe, protests in U.S. cities, flooding, lead-poisoned water in Flint, Michigan and more.
The producers of his show interviewed people on the streets of New York City.
One man said, "if we could erase 2016 off the calendar, it would be perfectly good with me."
Another said "it was a pretty rotten year, I think most people would admit that."
But on Monday, some people used the Twitter hashtag Upside Of 2016 to discuss some of the good news during the last 12 months.
When someone discusses "upside," it means something good or optimistic.
Some people responded to the prompt by saying the best thing about 2016 is that it is almost over.
But others said they celebrated graduations, engagements, weddings, births and other happy things.
One poster remembered that we got to experience one extra day because 2016 was a Leap Year.
Another celebrated her recovery from cancer.
The singer Chaka Khan reminded everyone that one hashtag Upside Of 2016 is that "we're still here," and she wrote "live a hashtag Super life NOW. Tomorrow is not promised."
And that's What's Trending Today.
