What's the Deal with 'X' months Going to 'X' on Facebook?

By Gina DiFalco,

Has anyone noticed the Facebook trend that has been popping up as of late – or have you, yourself done this -- of users informing their friends that they’re going to a certain destination for a certain amount of days, or that they are a certain amount of weeks along and “still craving”?

If you have been seeking an explanation, or even if you passed it by just as you did with your friend’s status update that she was watching repeats of Mad Men with a bowl of Cookies ‘N Cream ice cream, we at TheCelebrityCafe.com have an answer for you!

The one that reads just as this one does, “I’m going to live in Japan for 23 months” has to do with your birthday. For example, a user would choose from this list to make their status update:

January - Mexico
February - London
March - Miami
April - Dominican Republic
May - France
June - St. Petersburg
July - Austria
August - Germany
September - New York
October - Amsterdam
November - Las Vegas
December – Columbia

The user would also use the day of the month that they were born to state how many months they were living in the said location.

As for the craving one, it’s similar to the other one in that it should read “I'm (month you were born in) and craving (day you were born on).”

The day you were born on will correspond with this list:

1 - Skittles
2 - Starburst
3 - Kit-Kat
4 - M&M's
5 - Tomatoes
6 - Ice Cream
7 - Dairy Milk
8 - Lollipop
9 - Peanut Butter Cups
10 - Meat Balls
11 - Twizzlers
12 - Bubble Gum
13 - Hershey's Kisses
14 - Chocolate Mints
15 - Twix
16 - Cheese
17 - Fudge
18 - Cherry Jello
19 - Bananas
20 - Pickles
21 - Chicken Wings
22 - Skittles
23 - Gummy Bears
24 - Gummy Worms
25 - Strawberry Pop Tarts
26 - Starburst
27 - Mini Eggs
28 - Kit-Kat Chunky
29 - Double Chocolate Chip Crunchy Cookies
30 - Smarties
31 - Chocolate Cake

Are you going to try one of these updates out or just ignore it like you do half the other status updates on your news feed?
