It’s an internet version of an inside joke. It’s shared by thousands of people. It grows, spreads until it becomes part of the culture, and then it dies. But some that should die, live on in Facebook. What is it? A meme.
According to the online Oxford Dictionary a meme is “an image, video, piece of text, etc., typically humorous in nature, that is copied and spread rapidly by internet users, often with slight variations.”
Memes frequently pop up on my Facebook news feed, some silly, some affirming, some trite, some humorous, some thought-provoking, some cute, others a failure, some that question Christianity.
Those memes are the ones that deserve a response! That’s what this 35-minute presentation is about. Answering memes about Christmas that populated my Facebook news feed last Christmas.
