There’s one event this year you just can’t miss.

Thanks to a viral video invitation, a teenage girl in rural Mexico is going to have the quinceañera of a lifetime. With a guest list of more than 1 million people for the 15th birthday party, BBC reports, Mexican police are expected to deploy to the bash for security reasons.

Such a huge turnout would easily dwarf the extravagance of any ridiculously expensive Super Sweet 16 party on MTV. In the video invite, 14-year-old Rubi Ibarra Garcia stands smiling in a cheetah-print dress and tiara, as her father opens the December party to everyone who can come. Read more…

When it comes to love, it’s not about the money.

Quinn and Ariel McRae dated for two years before tying the knot. But a saleswoman where the couple bought Ariel’s rings tried to put a damper on the festivities by calling the jewelry “pathetic.”

“My husband doesn’t have a lot, neither of us do,” McRae explained in a Facebook post about the encounter. “We scrape and scrape to pay bills and put food in our bellies, but after almost 2 years of dating we decided that we couldn’t wait anymore, so we didn’t.”

“I wasn’t even thinking about rings, I just wanted to marry my best friend,” she continued, “But he wouldn’t have it. He scraped up just enough money to buy me two matching rings from Pandora.” Read more…

Ever since that infamous bottle flipping video earlier this year, it seems flipping bottles around is all the kids are doing now. 

Year 5 teacher Lauren Hinton admitted annoying at first, when students got into the craze.

“It’s noisy, it’s distracting and because they use the reusable plastic bottles, they often crack so it becomes messy,” she told the ABC.

But then she had a idea: What if she could teach mathematics to her students by disguising it with a viral fad? Delightfully devilish.

Now the kids are learning about probability, fractions and percentages while bottle flipping, and they’re enjoying it too.  Read more…

LONDON — A family’s selfie against the backdrop of a Scottish cliffside has gone viral.

However, as majestic as those cliffs are, it’s not the image itself that has caught the internet’s attention.

Rather, people are coming together to try and identify the faces in the picture so the family can be reunited with their camera. 

Twitter citizen Ruth Dawkins reports that the camera was discovered on the Isle of Skye, and shared an image from its memory in hopes that the family might be located.
