It’s finally here, and let me tell you, “Oh, isn’t it amazing?” doesn’t even begin to describe it.

Disney’s live-action “Beauty and the Beast” remake just opened in theaters, and fans of the animated classic need to see it as soon as possible. It lives up to the hype, and it still managed to surprise me even though I saw the original many years ago.

Caution: Binge watching can be dangerous!

By Emily Salvatori, Assistant Editor
 
It is not uncommon to hear people talking about watching a whole TV series in only a handful of days, or even bragging about it yourself.

Yes, observing this religious holiday is important to do in remembrance of the patron saint of Ireland, St. Patrick. Although, many people do not celebrate it in a religious way (go figure).
