Nothing takes us back to our childhood more than an ooey, gooey, melted grilled cheese sandwich. Apparently, we're not alone, because today is National Grilled Cheese Day.
A true comfort food (no matter what part of the world you grew up in), a delicious grilled cheese will never go out of style. But if you've been sticking to the classic (made with pre-wrapped, bright orange slices...you know who you are), it's time for an upgrade and a little bit of Latin flair.

After several weeks of Lent, wherein Catholics abstain from meat on Fridays and forfeit a chosen indulgence - coffee, alcohol, and chocolate, are common - in an act of spiritual self-discipline, Semana Santa often turns into a week-long feast.
Every country and region has its own Semana Santa traditions and recipes.
Here, a look at Semana Santa celebrations throughout Latin America.

What happens when people eat bugs for the first time? They bug out, that's what! (Get it? But out?)
In all seriousness, Buzzfeed was so curious about the answer to this question that they made a video to find out the answer. The result is hilarious and surprising.
Though bugs are a delicacy that people enjoy every day in Mexico, Peru, and other parts of Latin America, the people in this video are clearly not planning to incorporate insects into their diet anytime soon.
