Shamrocks, leprechauns, corned beef and cabbage, pinches for those who forget to wear green—St. Patrick’s Day is filled with traditions that have passed down from generation to generation. What began as a religious holiday in Ireland over 1,000 years ago to honor Saint Patrick, patron saint of Ireland, has morphed into a raucous celebration of all things Irish here across the pond.

Ironically, however, some of those traditions and “all things Irish” didn’t actually come from Ireland—including Saint Patrick himself.

A dad made a video to show his son what the 80s looked like and it is all kinds of nostalgic

Those who grew up in the 80s and 90s had a very different life than the children today. It was mostly about going out and playing with friends than being stuck in front of computers and PlayStations at home. A father named Justin on TikTok (@shadyraro), made a video to show his young son what the 80s really looked like and it is all kinds of nostalgic. The video starts with the caption, “My 8-year-old asked me what it was like growing up when I was his age in the 80s.”

He first shows swings and then VHS tapes with the text overlay, “This was our Netflix.” He goes on to show TVs with no remotes and contact lists that had letters from A to Z to choose from. Then, phones with cords and cassettes. The video also featured a photo of bicycles in a driveway with the text: “This is how we knew where our friends are.”

A couple of other things he included are “riding in the back of a car was the norm” and “bright colors were the fashion.” The video ends with video games and a picture of the “A Team,” which reads, “These guys were our idols.”

Woman recreates ‘Inside Out’ from a neurodivergent standpoint and people are feeling seen

Remember the hit Pixar movie “Inside Out”? If not, it’s a cartoon where emotions are personified so you can sort of see what each emotion is thinking. It’s a really sweet, funny and surprisingly emotional movie. But a woman who goes by Georgia on YouTube took that concept and decided to recreate it using different types of neurodivergent diagnoses and features.

In the video, Georgia plays all of the characters who all interact with each other as they work on controlling what the human they’re inside does. The characters are “General Thoughts,” “Dyslexia,” “ADHD,” “Sensory Issues,” “OCD” and “Anxiety.

Georgia is attempting to make dinner, but it’s a pretty intense process with all of these characters getting in the way, and while General Thoughts attempts to keep everyone on track…eh…it doesn’t work out so well.

Sorry, Labradors. After 31 years, America has a new favorite dog.

The sweet-faced, loveable Labrador Retriever is no longer America’s favorite dog breed. The breed best known for having a heart of gold has been replaced by the smaller, more urban-friendly French Bulldog.

According to the American Kennel Club, for the past 31 years, the Labrador Retriever was America’s favorite dog, but it was eclipsed in 2022 by the Frenchie. The rankings are based on nearly 716,500 dogs newly registered in 2022, of which about 1 in 7 were Frenchies. Around 108,000 French Bulldogs were recorded in the U.S. in 2022, surpassing Labrador Retrievers by over 21,000.

The French Bulldog’s popularity has grown exponentially over the past decade. They were the #14 most popular breed in 2012, and since then, registrations have gone up 1,000%, bringing them to the top of the breed popularity rankings.

Babysitting grandpa going viral with his constant texts to vacationing daughter

Good grandparents really are an important asset to young families just starting out. They can show you the ropes of parenthood, help entertain their grandkids, and probably most importantly, they know when you need a break because you’re their baby and they can always tell when something’s up with their child.

But sometimes, grandparents can be a little…uh…needy, even when they’re the best grandparents in every other aspect. Technology has changed so much over the decades since they were raising children, and sometimes they need a little extra help with things that might seem simple. Soon-to-be mom of two, Molly Madfis, took to TikTok to share what happened when her 75-year-old dad, John, was babysitting her 5-year-old, Arlo, for a few days while she was on a “babymoon” with her husband.
