TikTokers are dreading waking up on Jan. 9 — here’s why they’re hoping to hit the snooze button.
Jan. 9 was a big deal on the platform last year. It coincided with the second season premiere of HBO’s Euphoria. So, as expected, there was a lot of fan chatter about the big day. However, this year it means something entirely different — although it affects high schoolers just the same.

The trend began when people started posting clips of themselves and characters reacting to the date with anxiety.
The footage showed Venom from Spider-Man having a breakdown with the sound of an alarm clock overlayed.
The real reason Gen Z doesn’t want Jan. 9 to come is that it’s the day most of them return to school after break. Many people can relate to the feeling.
