We like lists. We’ve liked lists since long before Buzzfeed existed. You may have noticed that many of our articles are in list format, and much like we enjoy revisiting our favorite articles of the year at the end of each year, we also enjoy revisiting our favorite lists of the year. You can find our favorite lists from 2015 here and from 2014 here. So what did we find utterly list-worthy in 2016? Here’s a … list!
