End of the Year Facebook Montage

2014 is winding down and I don’t even need a calendar to know that. I just have to go on Facebook. As soon as I do, I’m bombarded by all of the End of the Year Facebook montages that everybody is posting. They are all the same. They start with a caption that reads, “It’s been a great year! Thanks for being a part of it.” Then it starts breaking down their year by displaying their most trafficked pictures. It’s all the same. There’s a picture of a wedding or an engagement, there’s a picture from some sporting event, there’s a couple of friends at bars or parties, and a few shots from vacations or day trips. It’s kind of weird how everyone has different lives but still do the exact same shit. There are so many End of the Year Facebook montages that you can’t watch them all. You have to choose which ones to watch, and you’re going to choose the ones that will most likely include a picture of you. You tell yourself that you’re not going to give in and do one of your own, but curiosity sets in and you’ll see what your year looks like in review. And you’ll kind of like it because you forgot how awesome your year actually was. Then you’ll share it because everybody else is doing it too and you don’t want to jump on the bandwagon too late.

End of the Year Montage Videos

We are in the final two weeks of 2013, which means that you’re about to experience a flood of End of the Year montage videos, lists, countdowns, and Year in Review hoopla in your Facebook feed. This is a time for reflection, a time to remember all the big news stories, untimely deaths, and memorable sports moments that made 2013 the crazy year it was. We celebrate the conclusion of each year with montage videos to remind us of all the stuff that we’ve already forgotten about. Expect to hear the hit singles of 2013 edited to media clips of natural disasters, suffering people, civil unrest and citizen uprisings, Pope Francis, Obamacare, the US Government shutdown, whistleblowing, school shootings, the Boston Marathon bombing, disgraced politicians, underrated miracles, and Miley Cyrus twerking and wrecking-balling. Kim and Kanye also want to remind you that they had a baby. 2013 was a fun year. And it looks better in a montage.
