A couple of food trends stand out. First, people really want carbs. From hash browns to fried rice, this list is really on carb overload. Maybe all the limited sunlight has people wanting food that can make them feel better. Carbs can do that (sorry Keto diet followers).

Also, several of these foods are spicy. It could be the chill or it could be the time of year, but several of these foods bring the heat. Could all those spices just make people feel a little more comfort, too?

Lastly, the foods are rather traditional. No one is really going too far out on a limb with these food choices. The list are more traditional take-out food choices.

It could be people on holiday overload, wanting a quiet day at home or just something that is approachable. No matter the reason, it is a pretty easy day for the darkest day of the year.
