Below are the important dates and some resources you can use:According to Cambridge Dictionary, meme is "an idea, image, video, etc. that is spread very quickly on the internet". Alternatively, accordingly to Urban Dictionary, meme is "the cure of depression" (with over 8,000 upvotes as of 30 March 2021).
