“Big Mood” is a Twitter phrase that took off in January. Its meaning is literal: People are using it to express a big, or intense, feeling.
A GIF of a smirking cheerleader with the caption “Big Mood” popularized its use, but in recent weeks, Big Mood has only gotten bigger. It’s no longer just a part of internet’s lexicon—Big Mood is now a big meme.
Take a look at some of these recent Big Mood jokes:

me: Big Mood
psychologist: [exasperatedly takes off glasses and rubs bridge of nose]

But how do you know if something is not just a mood, but a Big Mood?

Anything can be a Big Mood if you really believe in it.
