Everyone's favorite boy band released new music this year.

Adorable famous couples tied the knot with extravagant weddings.

Our favorite celebrities gave birth to cute mini-mes.

2018 was pretty great, right?


For every happy headline there were some major bummers.

Dead TV characters. Celebrity breakups. Bad movies.

While you're reminiscing over a year gone by, let us remind you of the top 10 garbage fires of the year.

These were the worst things that happened in 2018:
