It may seem like a typical Tuesday, but today is actually the first day of Hanukkah (by the way, here's a good way to celebrate). That's right, the holiday season is officially here, and we'll be ringing in 2018 before you know it — whether you're ready for it all or not.
You focus on the gift giving, holiday treats, and parties with family and friends. We'll focus on the news you need to know. Read on below for everything Bustle's editors were talking about Tuesday, Dec. 12:
Bachelor + Preview
We're just under three weeks away from Arie Luyendyk's season of The Bachelor so, yes, every new sneak peek ABC shares is filling fans with joy and utter excitement. The latest preview is no exception. Filled with tears, drama, and – yikes – exes, you can bet fans are counting down to Jan. 1 now more than ever.
Congrats! The Rock and Lauren Hashian are expecting baby number three, and his announcement is so adorable.
Netflix + 2017
While thinking about all of the 2017 best-of lists coming out as 2018 approaches seems a bit like an oxymoron because, well, 2017 was basically a dumpster fire, this one might change your mind. Think about what brought you the most joy this year. Was it your family, your friends, successful work/life balance? Potentially, but I'm sure nothing brought you more joy than staying in your home with the best life partner someone could ask for: Netflix. It's fine, we all feel the same. And it looks like we were all basically marathoning the same things this year.
