And what were the most emotional times of the year? According to data by Tenor, people were most emotional around January 15. Perhaps it's linked to Donald Trump's swearing-in as US President just five days later? Other emotional days were Valentine's Day, Superbowl, Hurricane Irma and Las Vegas mass shooting. "Scared" and "pray" were the most searched GIFs for the last two.
