In Honor Of National Grandparents Day, Here Are 20 Awesome Grandmas And Grandpas

Funny
You know who are hands down the greatest people on Earth? Grandparents. It's not up for debate. With mothers and fathers stealing the spotlight and getting their very own holidays, isn't it only fair that we also honor the grandmas and grandpas who spoil us rotten? googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display('VN_PG_DCBP_ATF'); }); National Grandparents Day happens to fall on September 11 this year, so there's still plenty of time to prepare and show your elders just how much they mean to you. Even though all my grandparents are no longer with us, I've decided to compile a list of grandparents who are so cool, they remind me of my own. Hopefully, this inspires you to pick up the phone and call Grammy and Pop next week (or today)! 1. This photo so accurately describe...

Cops In Lithuania Keep Pulling Women Over, But Not For The Reason You’d Expect

Cops In Lithuania Keep Pulling Women Over, But Not For The Reason You’d Expect

Funny
There are approximately zero people on this planet who enjoy getting pulled over. Seeing those red and blue lights in the rearview is always a gut-wrenching experience, and it's one that most of us tend to avoid like the plague by driving the speed limit and never being that moron who doesn't use turn signals. And that's exactly what these ladies in Lithuania were doing earlier this week on March 8, so why were they getting pulled over?As it turns out, the cops didn't give them tickets. In honor of International Women's Day, they decided to hand out flowers instead! These ladies feared the worst, but based on their reactions, those flowers cheered them right up!

21 Items Donation Drives Really Need That You Can Give This Holiday Season

Funny
It's that time of year where families start preparing for their holiday traditions and lavish feasts. While Thanksgiving is traditionally a day to give thanks for everything you have in your life, many people across the country who might otherwise not be able to partake are able to celebrate thanks to food banks and donations. In my area, a few weeks before the holiday, the boy scouts go door to door asking for neighbors to donate a few cans to help give someone an awesome Thanksgiving feast. While most people donate whatever canned goods are cluttering up their pantries, many food banks still fail to receive the essentials necessary for comfort and well-balanced meals. To help ensure people are getting exactly what they need around the holidays,...

There’s Halloween, Sure, But Here’s How Other Cultures Celebrate Death

Funny
Everyone likes Halloween. You get to dress up, eat candy, and hang out with your friends all night. But there's way more to it than the latest costume fads and sugary snacks. Halloween started out as a celebration of the dead, and some of its ancient roots still shine through. And since death is a part of life, it makes sense that people all over the world, from all different cultures and backgrounds, have their own holidays set aside to honor those who have passed on. 1. Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead), Mexico Flickr / Byron Howes This holiday dates back to the Aztec Empire, and over the centuries, it's blended with the Catholic All Souls' Day to become a colorful celebration of the dead. On this night, families gather to clean and decorate...
17 Kids Who Really, Really Hate Their Christmas Presents

17 Kids Who Really, Really Hate Their Christmas Presents

Funny
It's the most wonderful time of the year...unless you're on the receiving end of some pretty horrible Christmas gifts. Christmas is the day that many children of all ages look forward to the most. Can you blame them, though? Who doesn't love getting gifts?But after they've anticipated Santa's arrival and struggled to fall asleep on Christmas Eve, they feel intense sadness if they awake to find a less-than-perfect gift under the tree. Maybe it's the wrong color or they already have it, or maybe it's something they never wanted in the first place. Regardless of what exactly sent these kids into Christmastime meltdowns, you have to admit that it's pretty hilarious to see kids absolutely lose their marbles over their presents. 1...

These People Took Trolling To A Whole New Level When It Came To Wrapping Presents

Funny
If there's one thing I hate about Christmas, it's wrapping presents. After seeing these how these 15 trolls wrapped their gifts, however, I just might give it another chance! When I was about ten years old, I woke up on Christmas morning to find that the biggest present under the tree was addressed to me. It was so big, I was convinced it was a trampoline. As I unwrapped it, I found one box after another. Finally, I reached one small enough to fit in the palm of my hand. Inside was a tiny pair of stud earrings. The 15 people on this list must have taken a lesson out of my parents' book. Some of their gift-wrapping jobs are funny, while others are beyond frustrating -- but each and every one is definitely memorable! 1. Is t...

When you think about it, New Year's Eve is kind of a bizarre holiday. What better way to celebrate the coming of the new year than by waiting for a light-up ball to drop, macking on each other, and drinking weird carbonated wine from France, right?But there are some New Year's Eve and New Year's Day celebrations out there that make those rituals sound normal. Take these, for example. In Mount Olive, North Carolina, the New Year's Day pickle is dropped at the stroke of midnight.
