Aesthetics Wiki

Wholesome Meme is a meme aesthetic based around wholesomeness, love, positivity and happiness. The aesthetic typically consists of cute or funny pre-existing images edited with a massive amount of hearts and overlayed positive and heartwarming phrases, thus, it creates a sense of comfort and joy. The images edited often feature cute fictional characters (such as Kirby, Kermit the Frog, characters from We Bare Bears, etc.), anime characters, Internet memes (such as Doge), cute animals, YouTubers and other well known celebrities. Sometimes pessimistic images are also taken and they are given a different, sympathetic meaning. Wholesome Memes were mainly prevalent in 2018 and 2019, especially within some Instagram and trends such as edits featuring the song Mine by Bazzi.
