6 Old Trends That Should Be Left in the Past

The world is constantly changing. So much so, it is often imperceptible to us. Many old trends are still reigning supreme, although they have higher quality alternatives.

People continue to buy cars and houses, and attend circuses. Although the current values look completely different.

Despite the abundance of information sources, television remains one of the most important media worldwide. As a source of information, it often loses to online platforms, as a source of entertainment — to streaming services. Although the Internet can completely replace it, it has not yet been fully eliminated from everyday life.

2. Fast Food

Despite hundreds of studies on the dangers of fast food, it is not going anywhere. With virtually no benefits, it does have advantages that will most likely always allow it to survive. Fast food is easy to have on the go and quick to prepare at home, which makes it very valuable in the current era of busy schedules and overwhelming lives.

3. Houses

People are still willing to take out lifelong loans to get their own place, although renting a home has many advantages. It’s cheaper, it gives people the mobility they need today, and it’s less troublesome. However, owning a home is a form of success and wealth.

4. Circus

A circus is a medieval form of entertainment geared towards a crowd hungry for a spectacle. A circus that uses animals is inhumane, although in recent years people have been working on fighting them. Acrobat and juggler performances are a mesmerizing display, but nowadays, it is not enough to amaze the audience. At the same time, circuses remain relevant in many parts of the world.

5. Package Tours

Thanks to the internet, planning a vacation has become easier than ever. Anyone can find a suitable hotel or Airbnb, cheaper or with a better view, sign up for tours, or plan any activities. However, many continue to enlist the help of tourism agencies, simply not wanting to waste their time. Hence, many tend to feel bored and disappointed with their trip afterward.

6. iPhones

Apple products are still considered by many to be one of the key indicators of success. Today, anyone can choose the right smartphone for their budget and tastes, and it will, most likely, be just as good as an iPhone. However, it does not prevent people from taking loans and credits to get their hands on the newest model.

Why is it that these old trends are still popular today? It seems that a lot of people can’t keep up with progress. Our values change much slower than the world around us. It isn’t bad, of course; everything must happen at the right time.


I am an English major with a love of languages and fiction, and with an incurable travel bug. In my free time, I read fantasy, drink copious amounts of coffee, and like to go see movies. Culinary art means everything to me. My main hypostasis is the taster, though. The music school has taught me to appreciate the symphony of airy meringues, to create harmonious overtures of light snacks, hard rock of meat, fish, and vegetables on the grill. Choir classes have accustomed me to hear and feel the people nearby and create perfect harmonies of sounds.
