  • Cinco de Mayo is Saturday, and before everyone gets ready for happy hours and parties, it helps to go in with a plan. >> Read more trending stories There are plenty of ways to celebrate the day, which commemorates Mexico’s victory over France in the Battle of Puebla on May 5 1862, during the French-Mexican war. Make sure you do not do any of the following: Dress up in sombreros and fake mustaches There is no need to 'dress up' for this day, but if you do, do not wear a sombrero, mariachi suit, serape, fake mustache or anything of the sort if you are not a member of that culture. Those things have historical and cultural significance, and donning them just for a day caricatures and stereotypes people. That's not fun. Go out and get drunk There is nothing wrong with drinking in moderation and doing it socially, but responsibility is key. What is the use in celebrating a day if you get sick or can't remember it? Make English words Spanish by adding an 'o' on the end Not only does it not make any sense, but by doing this, it makes fun of another language and turns it into a joke. The same goes for plays on the holiday name, so no parties or themes like 'Cinco de Drinko.' You can make a margarita cupcake or a fun cocktail, or have dinner at a family-owned Mexican restaurant. There are plenty of ways to celebrate Cinco de Mayo without doing any of the three above.
  • Sunday is Earth Day 2018, and more than one billion people across the globe are expected to celebrate with environmentally friendly events. But what exactly is Earth Day? Here's what you need to know: >> Read more trending news  1. When did Earth Day start? The first Earth Day celebration took place 48 years ago, in 1970, after a devastating oil spill in America brought environmental issues to the forefront of public consciousness. According to the Environmental Protection Agency, 22 million people across the country came out in support of environmental reform. 'That day left a permanent impact on the politics of America,' Gaylord Nelson wrote in the April 1980 edition of the EPA Journal. 'It forcibly thrust the issue of environmental quality and resources conservation into the political dialogue of the nation. 'It showed political and opinion leadership of the country that the people cared, that they were ready for political action, that the politicians had better get ready, too. In short, Earth Day launched the environmental decade with a bang.' Since then, celebrations have only grown. This year, organizers estimate more than one billion people in 192 countries will participate in events the world over. The day is celebrated each year on April 22. >> Target’s Earth Day car seat recycling program offers 20 percent off new car seat, stroller 2. Is there a theme for Earth Day 2018? This year, organizers are focusing on curbing plastic pollution. 'Our goals include ending single-use plastics, promoting alternatives to fossil fuel-based materials, promoting 100 percent recycling of plastics, corporate and government accountability and changing human behavior concerning plastics,' the Earth Day Network, which partners with tens of thousands of organizations in 192 countries to organize Earth Day events, said on its website. The organization also said it 'will educate millions of people about the health and other risks associated with the use and disposal of plastics, including pollution of our oceans, water, and wildlife, and about the growing body of evidence that decomposing plastics are creating serious global problems.'

Google marked Earth Day with a 'video doodle' featuring primatologist Jane Goodall.  >> Click here to watch “It is so important in the world today that we feel hopeful and do our part to protect life on Earth,' Goodall said. 'I am hopeful that this Earth Day Google Doodle will live as a reminder for people across the globe that there is still so much in the world worth fighting for. So much that is beautiful, so many wonderful people working to reverse the harm, to help protect species and their environments. And there are so, so many young people, like those in JGI’s Roots & Shoots program, dedicated to making this a better world. With all of us working together, I am hopeful that it is not too late to turn things around, if we all do our part for this beautiful planet.” Read more about the doodle here. Apple also joined in on the celebrations, announcing on April 19 that 'for every device received at Apple stores and apple.com through the Apple GiveBack program from now through April 30, the company will make a donation to the nonprofit Conservation International.' In addition, Apple 'debuted Daisy, a robot that can more efficiently disassemble iPhone to recover valuable materials,' according to a company press release. “At Apple, we’re constantly working toward smart solutions to address climate change and conserve our planet’s precious resources,” Lisa Jackson, Apple’s vice president of environment, policy and social Initiatives, said in a statement. “In recognition of Earth Day, we are making it as simple as possible for our customers to recycle devices and do something good for the planet through Apple GiveBack. We’re also thrilled to introduce Daisy to the world, as she represents what’s possible when innovation and conservation meet.” Read more here. >> Tips for celebrating the 20th anniversary of Disney's Animal Kingdom 5.

Lead a recycling drive to collect as much plastic, metal, and glass as possible. Pick up trash at a local park or beach. Set up a screening of an environmentally themed movie. Consider supplementing the screening with a speaker who can lead a Q&A following the film.
  • This year, April Fools’ Day is sharing the spotlight with Easter, but there are still plenty of pranks to be found. >> Read more trending news  Along with Easter greetings, companies have been hard at work creating their April Fools’ Day pranks.  Here is a roundup of the best of them. 
  • Christians believe Jesus was mocked publicly and crucified on a solemn Friday more than two thousand years ago. Today, the calamitous day is celebrated as Good Friday. But what’s so good about that? >> Read more trending news One answer is that at the time of Jesus’ crucifixion, “good” may have referred to “holy” in Old English, a linguistic theory supported by many language experts. According to Slate, the Oxford English Dictionary notes the Wednesday before Easter was once called “Good Wednesday.” Today, it’s more commonly known as Holy Wednesday. And Anatoly Liberman, a University of Minnesota professor who studies the origins of English words, told Slate if we consider the alternative names for Good Friday, such as “Sacred Friday” (romance languages) or “Passion Friday” (Russian), this theory makes a lot of sense. Another possible reason for its moniker — a theory supported by both linguists and historical evidence — refers to the holiday’s ties to Easter Sunday, which celebrates the resurrection of Christ. Because Jesus couldn’t have been resurrected without dying, the day of his death is, in a sense, “good.” “That terrible Friday has been called Good Friday because it led to the Resurrection of Jesus and his victory over death and sin and the celebration of Easter, the very pinnacle of Christian celebrations,” the Huffington Post reported. A third answer, some believe, is that the “good” in Good Friday was derived from 'God” or “God’s Friday” — the way the term “goodbye” comes from a contraction of the phrase “God Be With You.” Still, not everyone refers to this day as Good Friday. For example,  The Catholic Encyclopedia mentions that, in the Greek Church, the holiday is known as 'the Holy and Great Friday.' In German, it's referred to as 'Sorrowful Friday.' And as aforementioned, “Sacred Friday” and “Passion Friday” are also used. In addition, because the holiday is also commemorated with a long fast, Good Friday was also referred to as “Long Friday” by the Anglo-Saxons. Read more at Slate.com
