Aries girls: Aries ladies, you don’t need to drink to get in touch with your spitfire attitude. But, when you do start to drink, you really know how to turn up the heat! Partying with you is intense. You’re the kind of babe who will proudly down the strongest drink at the club … and then force your amigos to do the same! Your fiery temper can get the best of you once you’ve had one too many. Your fellow partygoers better watch out!

Aries guys: Drinks with friends always turns into drinks with games when an Aries man like you gets your way. It doesn’t matter if it is King’s Cup, Strip Poker, or Beer Pong, you’re up for any challenge. And let’s face it, even if you’re short of props, you’re happy to turn anything into a drinking game! This is when your competitive side sees the light of day, so don’t be surprised if you wake up with one hell of a hangover.

Taurus (April 20 – May 20)

Taurus girls: One of the worst things you could do as a drunk Taurus lady is go to the club. It’s not that you’re a bad person to take to the club, per se. But, your klutziness turns the whole thing into a disaster! Heels plus alcohol plus stairs plus dancing just equals one messy time. Doubtless, you’ll be the babe who will be barefoot by the end of the night, clutching at her heels. Maybe pack some flats when you go out next time!

Taurus guys: Your scene is a quiet drink with your friends, usually at your local. You really begin to connect with your down-to-earth self once you’ve had a few beers. You’re probably the best sign of the zodiac to have as a drinking buddy, since you are just so easygoing. You like to have a good laugh when you’re drunk, and your friends know that they won’t have a care in the world once they’ve started drinking with you.

Gemini (May 21 – June 20)

Gemini girls: Did someone say chatterbox? Gemini ladies, you know how to talk the ears off of anyone and everyone once you’ve had a few Caronas. When you start to get a little messy, that’s when you also start to get really sentimental. No one says “I love you,” quite like a drunk Gemini to her friends. It’s entirely likely that you’ll start crying at some point, because it’s hard to handle that much emotion after you’ve been drinking all night!

Gemini guys: Gemini is the sign of the twin for a reason, Mr. Gemini! Your mood changes pretty quickly once you’ve had one too many. You can go from happy to sad, angry to relaxed, or serious to hilarious at the flip of a switch. Even though everyone knows to watch out for you when you’ve been drinking, they never know what to expect from you!

Cancer (June 21 – July 22)

Cancer girls: If you’re a Cancer babe, that means you can’t just have one drink. Drinking is an occasion for you, so that means that everyone must do rounds! You can get pretty drunk, pretty quickly. Ever heard of the phrase “white girl wasted”? Because that’s basically your spirit animal once you’re nearing the end of the night. It’s common to see you curled up in tears at this point – either because of something someone’s said, or because you’ve just seen hella cute kitten.

Cancer guys: You know that you’re a bit of a charmer at the best of times, Cancer boy, but when you’re drunk you really get your flirt on! Some find you absolutely irresistible, while others think that sometimes you’re just that little bit too smooth. Most of the time you’re too drunk to notice this, though, and you will instead happily spend the night making friends and meeting potential lovers.

Leo (July 23 – August 22)

Leo girls: A drunk Leo babe means a lot of drunk dancing. You like to be the centre of attention when you’re sober, so when you’re drunk you have zero inhibitions about chasing that spotlight. The best place for a tipsy Leo babe is either at the club, where you can shake it off, or at karaoke, where you can sing all of your drunken energy away. If someone were to ask you, you would tell them that your favourite drinking game is truth or dare.

Getty Images

Leo guys: Leo man, you make for the best partner in any drinking game – mainly because you hold your alcohol so well! It can be a surprise to fellow partygoers if you do throw up, since they usually think you’ve only had a drink or two. And besides, you’d rather die than admit that you’re actually getting drunk, anyway. You may find that people look to you to rally the troops once the night gets a little more messy, simply because you are such a sober drunk.

Virgo (August 23 – September 22)

Virgo girls: Virgo babe, you like to have a good time when you’re getting drunk. But, your idea of a good time is a little different from what everyone else usually has in mind. You need to know exactly when you’re going out, how you’re getting home, who else is going drinking, and how much to budget for beers. If anyone asks, you’re able to list exactly what you’ve had to drink through the night. Given the choice, you’d prefer a quiet night drinking with a few friends over dinner.

Virgo guys: You have trouble keeping your tongue under control when you’ve had a few, Virgo man! Even though you’re normally a pretty reserved person, once alcohol is involved, you say exactly what comes into your head! This is the best time for you to get your flirt on. But, it’s also the worst time for anyone else who’s not expecting the vile language that comes out of your mouth! Your friends are always entertained when they go drinking with you.

Libra (September 23 – October 22)

Libra girls: Being a Libra is all about being able to find a balance. Unfortunately for you, Libra babe, when you’re exposed to alcohol, all of that goes out the door! You know how to drink, and drink, and drink. Your friends love going out with you because they know they’re in for a wild night! That being said, it’s highly likely that you won’t remember much of it. Your friends will happily jog your memory, since your antics are pretty Insta-worthy!

Libra guys: Libra man, you know how to balance your alcohol intake so that your night doesn’t end in disaster. You try your best to keep an eye on what you’ve had to drink, and always make sure you’ve had some food and water to prevent really bad behaviour. This means that a lot of the time, you get stuck with looking after your friends who have gotten super messy through the night.

Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)

Scorpio girls: You’re one amorous drunk, Scorpio lady. You see drinking as an opportunity to get to know people better, in a very intimate way. Doubtless, you’re the one in the club who’s nursing a drink at the edge of the dance floor, scouting for some unsuspecting hottie. It’s a bad night for you if you haven’t kissed at least one person. Your friends usually have to pull you away from someone when they want to make a move home!

Getty Images

Scorpio guys: If you’re a Scorpio man, you treat drinking as an excuse for all of your really biting insults that come out! No matter how drunk you do get, you still have the ability to hold your emotions back – there’s no sentimentality from you! Since you turn into the king of sarcasm after a few drinks, you serve as some pretty good entertainment for your friends … so long as they don’t become a target of your “wit”.

Sagittarius (November 23 – December 21)

Getty Images

Scorpio girls: Ask anyone, and they will tell you: you make one really happy drunk, Scorpio lady. Most people can’t hold in their smiles when they’re drinking with you. Your drunken buoyant mood lifts the spirits (Punintended) of anyone in your crew! It’s because of this that you can make friends easily when you’re drinking, and it’s not uncommon for you to wake up the next day with a bunch of new friends on Facebook. The main problem you face is trying to remember who is who in the sober light of day!

Getty Images

Scorpio guys: You’re spontaneous to a fault when you drink, Sagittarius! Since you lose all of your inhibitions, this can lead to some pretty stupid behaviour … and a lot of laughs from your friends. But, sometimes your “carefree” attitude can turn into “careless” pretty quickly, especially when you’re talking to people who don’t know you very well. Yes, you may offend people. Most of the time, though, these people will catch onto the fact that you’re not malicious, you’re just a silly drunk!

Capricorn (December 22 – January 20)

Getty Images

Capricorn girls: Capricorn babe, you know your limits when you drink, and try to stick to them as much as possible. You know your reputation is at its most vulnerable when you get drunk, and so you try your hardest to stay away from Facebook and Instagram once you’ve had a few! It’s because of this that you rarely embarrass yourself when you’re drinking. That being said, you have the ability to drink all of your friends under the table!

Getty Images

Capricorn guys: Your ego grows with each drink that you have, Capricorn man! You can’t stand to be bested when it comes to drinking games. For you, drinking games are not about making others drink, or about trying to drink as much as possible. It’s about the challenge and joy of winning. Your friends know that you’re a competitive drunk, and can’t help but egg you on. Then again, everyone wants to be on your team when it comes time to play billiards!

Aquarius (January 21 – February 18)

Getty Images

Aquarius girls: The one who’s surrounded by people in the bar while she tells some outrageous story? That’s you, Aquarius babe. You take on the role of the entertainer when you’ve had a few drinks, and it shows. Drinking really brings out your goofiness and charm, and you make friends easily because of it. Lots of people gravitate towards a drunk Aquarius like you, since you are super welcoming, and a conversationalist at heart. That being said, your tendency towards exaggeration can sometimes make you a bit of a dramatic drunk!

Getty Images

Aquarius guys: Aquarius man, you’re stuck balancing your drink with a camera most of the time when you’re out partying! Your passion for the ‘gram makes you the most memorable of partygoers, and others enjoy the fact that you like having fun with the photos you take. You know that even if you do happen to have too many drinks, you’ll still have plenty of memories of the night on camera!

Pisces (February 19 – March 20)

Getty Images

Pisces girls: Pieces lady, you’re without a doubt the star sign that inevitably spends the end of the night in tears. You’re an emotional drunk because you care so deeply about the people around you. If anyone asks about the waterworks, though, you’ll say that it’s “nothing” and take another swig of your beer. If you haven’t already, it’s probably time you invested in some waterproof mascara and makeup setting spray.

Getty Images

Pisces guys: Let’s face it: everyone knows that if they go partying with a Pisces man, they’re going to have a wild time. A drunk Pisces man is one hell of a messy Pisces man. You’re a party animal, and as far as you’re concerned, any excuse to get another drink is a good enough excuse for you. You’re a daring drunk, and you like to spend your time dancing the night away with your most risky moves. It’s not uncommon to see you passed out by the end the party.

UPS Delivery Man Is Fired After Video Surfaces of His Anti-Latino Racist Rant

UPS Delivery Man Is Fired After Video Surfaces of His Anti-Latino Racist Rant

An unnamed UPS delivery driver has been fired after being caught using racist language when delivering a package to a Latino household. The incident occurred on December 17th.

The video, which was caught on a doorbell camera’s security footage, shows a white UPS driver appearing to be angry when delivering a package.

“Now you don’t get f—–g nothing…You can’t read and write and speak the f—–g English language,” he says while writing a “failed to deliver” notice and pasting it on the house’s front door.

The Aviles family says that the footage shows that the UPS worker never even attempted to deliver the package in the first place. He never rang the doorbell or knocked on the door. Based on that, the family has come to the conclusion that the driver intentionally withheld the package from the family out of prejudice and spite

They believe that the only way the driver could’ve known that the family was Latino was by making assumptions based off the name on the package.

“The only information this driver had that could serve as a trigger for this deep-seated hate was the name on the package,” said Forward Latino President Darryl Morin at a press conference addressing the incident.

“So what we have here is a very intentional act to ruin Christmas for somebody, for someone to spew this hateful rhetoric, and quite honestly to deceive their employer,” Morin continued.

Per UPS, the employee has now been fired. “There is no place in any community for racism, bigotry or hate. This is very serious and we promptly took action, terminating the driver’s employment. UPS is wholeheartedly committed to diversity, equity and inclusion,” UPS said in a statement. They also said they contacted the family to apologize.

But the Aviles family is still rattled that such bigoted people are out and about, letting their petty prejudices effect other people’s lives.

“The package was a Christmas gift that we eventually received after Christmas Day, but what if it happened to have time-sensitive content like an epipen or a book I needed to take a final,” said Shirley Aviles, the mother of the man who lives at the address, told NBC News. “I don’t get it. It’s just sad.”

Aviles seemed disturbed about what this incident says about human nature. “This is about the things people do when they think no one is watching them. That’s important because that’s when you see people’s true colors and that’s what’s scary,”

Here Are Some Christmas Traditions From Around Latin America

Here Are Some Christmas Traditions From Around Latin America

Christmas is a special time of year. Families have their traditions to mark the festive year and some of those traditions are rooted in culture. Here are some of the ways various countries in Latin America celebrate Christmas.

El Pase Del Niño Viajero – Ecuador

El Pase del Niño Viajero is a pageant that happens in Ecuador that lasts weeks. The parade is meant to represent the journey of Mary and Joseph. The parade highlights the religious importance of Christmas in Ecuador and is most common in the Andean region of the country.

The biggest and most important parade is in Cuenca, a deeply religious city. Citizens near the city have all day to see the parade as it starts in the early morning and runs through the late afternoon. This gives people a lot of time to make it to the city to witness the parade.

La Gritería – Nicaragua

La Gritería comes after La Purisma. La Purisma is celebrated at the end of November and is meant to celebrate the Immaculate Conception of the Virgin Mary. La Gritería is celebrated in early December and involves literal yelling. Someone would shout “Que causa tanta alegria?” (“What causes so much happiness?”) People respond “La Concepción de María.” (“Mary’s Conception.”)

Las Posadas – Mexico

Mexican posadas are the most recognizable. Posadas take place in Mexico from Dec. 16-24, though this year they are most likely to be virtual. The posada begins with a procession in the neighborhood filled with people singing and sometimes led by two people dressed as Mary and Joseph.

Another part is the posada party. Before guests can enter, there is a song exchange with the people outside playing Joseph looking for shelter. The hosts sing the side of the innkeeper saying there is no room. Eventually, the guests are welcomed into the home to celebrate Christmas.

Aguinaldos – Colombia

Aguinaldos are a series of games played by people in Colombia leading up to Christmas. There are certain games that are common among people in Colombia. One is pajita en boca, which requires holding a straw in your mouth the entire time of a social event. Another is dar y no recibir, which is about getting people to take something you are giving to score a point.

El Quema Del Diablo – Guatemala

El quema del diablo is celebrated in early December and is a way of letting go of the previous year. People burn piñatas and effigies of the devil to let go of all negative feelings and moments from the previous year. If there was every to try a new tradition, this would be the year. Burn an effigy and banish 2020 to the past, where it belongs.
