3. If you're looking for a reason to party on a Wednesday, today is Cinco de Mayo!

It's a day Americans celebrate Mexican-American Heritage and pride.

The United States Congress issued a proclamation in 2005 calling on Americans to observe Cinco De Mayo.

Most people do so by enjoying Mexican-themed food and drinks, like tacos and margaritas.

4. Tiffany and Company is releasing its first men's engagement ring.

The ring comes in platinum and titanium designs with a diamond in the center. The jeweler is naming it after its founder, Charles Lewis Tiffany.

The men's ring will be available at Tiffany's in New York this month.
