What’s December 3? TikTok fans have a fixation on December 3; the date has returned in 2021, but what does it represent this time? Let’s find out what makes today so remarkable.
TikTok members are notoriously private, so when the platform suddenly explodes with videos about a given date, it can be difficult to decipher what’s going on.
Users of the app were left scratching their heads after a string of popular videos appeared on the platform last year. The date went viral because it was being dubbed by users as a “day for manifestation.”
The latest date that everyone seems to be fixated on is December 3rd. So, what exactly is going on today? What is it?
Tiktok: What’s December 3?
If you’ve been on TikTok recently, you might have seen a lot of videos mentioning December 3rd pop up on your For You tab. There seems to be a TikTok craze over this date, but why? It’s all connected to Heather, a song by Conan Gray that plays in the backdrop of all the videos posted on December 3.
In addition to the song’s widespread popularity, the name “Heather” is also being used frequently on TikTok at the moment. When someone calls you “Heather,” they’re referring to the stereotypical gorgeous, popular girl who plays the lead role in most films.
The first line of the song, “I still remember, December 3rd,” is where the December 3rd phenomenon arose. The song then continues: “Me in your sweater, you thought it looked better on me than it did you.”
It’s about a person who is pining for their crush on December 3, and now everyone on TikTok is discussing falling in love on that date.
On 3rd December, TikTok users are expecting that they will be gifted a sweater by their crush as that’s what occurs in the song. There’s still hope for you to meet your soul mate in 2021; in fact, it might happen as soon as today.
While others are sitting at home in their sweatshirts wishing their crush would ask them out on TikTok, others are posting videos of themselves sobbing.
Heather, the Song That Started It All
In 2020, when users on the video-sharing app TikTok began creating clips set to Conan Gray’s song “Heather,” the craze began. Heather, short for “good-looking” or “popular” girl, is often said to have originated in the 1988 movie of the same name.
Many TikTok users, who can relate to the song’s theme of having a crush on someone, have set their sights on December 3 in the hopes of receiving a sweater as a sign of affection. If I had to choose between a new fleece and being flooded by Heathers, I’d pick the former any day.
The song Heather by Conan Gray has racked up over 88 million views on YouTube as of December 2, 2021.
On December 3rd, What Exactly Will Take Place?
TikTok users went crazy in 2020, creating a deluge of videos celebrating December 3. This trend continues today. All videos uploaded on that day feature Conan Gray’s song Heather playing in the background, hence the name of the trend.
The name “Heather” was another reason the song became famous on the social networking platform. A “Heather” is a “beautiful, popular girl,” as defined by the 1988 film Heathers. Many TikTok users expect that December 3 would result in them becoming lucky in love.
TikTok lovers anticipate that their secret crush will eventually return their feelings with a gesture – and some even celebrate the day by gifting their sweater to the person they’re interested in.

Are you planning to give in to romantic temptation on December 3? Only time will tell. However, there are many who have been waiting for a date while sitting on their sweaters.
At The End
The third of December is probably associated with sweaters if you’ve seen it mentioned on your For You Page. All of this, it turns out, is due to a lyric from Conan Gray’s song “Heather,” which became a huge hit on TikTok in 2020 and has stayed there ever since.
I still recall, December third, me in your sweater,” is the song’s first lyric. It looked better on me than it did on you, you said.
