What is so special about December 3?

December 3rd is a big deal on TikTok because of the song Heather by Conan Gray. The lyrics have made TikTok users feel quite emotional:

“I still remember the third of December, me in your sweater
You said it looked better on me than it did you
Only if you knew how much I liked you.”

The song has long been popular on the video-sharing app, which means fans have been anticipating this date, and how it will make them feel, for a long time.

Conan Gray is an American singer-songwriter and ‘Heather’ is a track on his debut album, which came out in September 2020. The lyrics mourn a previous relationship and millions of TikTok users seem to relate.

December 3 TikTok encourages fans of the song to share a video of themselves looking upset, pining for romance, set to the opening of ‘Heather’.

Other captions include, “girls um… it’s almost December 3rd… good luck :)” and “anybody wanna be my bf for tmr so I can post u with this song”. It seems Conan Gray has made TikTok hyper-aware that it is cuffing season…
