Tide pods, The World Cup and The Winter Olympics.
Stan Lee, Avicii and The Humboldt Broncos.

A lot happened this past year and as we are counting down the days of 2018, in what has become pretty much tradition, Google has broken down the top trending searches on its search engine for the whole of 2018.
My favourite moment of 2018 has got to be the winter Olympics. Seeing us get gold in mixed doubles curling and breaking or record with 29 medals! Surpassing the 26 won at the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver.
