A quick glance at a calendar will tell you that this Friday is the first day of May, when April showers supposedly disappear and flowers begin to bloom in full. What your calendar probably doesn’t tell you, however, is that Friday is also Global Love Day, an annual tradition launched in 2004 by the Love Foundation, a nonprofit organization that spreads messages of unconditional love through its programs.

How you choose to celebrate is, of course, up to you—you could hug a tree, call your parents, or go whole hog and leave a love letter in the mailbox of your longtime secret crush. Or you could use the day as an opportunity to revisit some of the greatest romance films of all time.

To help you get into the spirit of swooning, UK-based online watch retailer Watches2U has created an image that depicts 21 famous romantic movies in one image. In it, cartoons, emoticons, and seemingly random objects illustrate scenes from the films or the titles of the films themselves. Once you’ve identified all 21 (or as many as you can), keep scrolling to reveal an identical image with numbers that correspond to the list of answers below.

At the risk of giving too much away, we won’t name any classic romantic movies from years past, but we will tell you this: No subgenre is off-limits in this puzzle. There are romantic comedies, musicals, tearjerkers, timeless classics, and more. Watches2U is challenging people to guess them all in less than 5 minutes, but feel free to give yourself extra time.

If you’ve gone through all the recipes you had bookmarked on your phone and are now on a first-name basis with the folks at the local pizzeria, it might be time to introduce a new wrinkle into your weekly dinner menu. But instead of buying loads of groceries and cookbooks to make your own meal, you can just subscribe to a service like Blue Apron, which will deliver all the ingredients and instructions you need for a unique dinner.

And if you start your subscription before May 26, you can save $20 on each of your first three weekly boxes from the company. That means that whatever plan you choose—two or four meals a week, vegetarian or the Signature plan—you’ll save $60 in total.

With the company’s Signature plan, you’ll get your choice of meat, fish, and Beyond foods, along with options for diabetes-friendly and Weight Watchers-approved dishes. The vegetarian plan loses the meat, but still allows you to choose from a variety of dishes like General Tso's tofu and black bean flautas.

To get your $60 off, head to the Blue Apron website and click “Redeem Offer” at the top of the page to sign up.

25 Classic TV Series Audiences Most Want to See Make a Comeback

There’s definitely no shortage of new television shows to watch these days, but the recent slew of series revivals offers nostalgists the unique opportunity to catch up with their favorite fictional characters without streaming reruns on a loop.

So which TV shows are viewers most eager to see return to screens? To find out, UK-based digital retailer OnBuy analyzed Google search data for a variety of classic series—paired with terms like reunion, new series, and new season—and ranked them in order of average monthly search volume.

Reunion specials or spin-off series have already been announced for some of the shows on the list, so fans could be looking for the latest update on production status or premiere date. For the nearly 90,000 people googling for information about the highly anticipated Friends reunion, which tops the list, we have great news: Jennifer Aniston, David Schwimmer, and the rest of the gang will reportedly film it this summer. Game of Thrones came in a not-so-close second, with an average monthly search volume of almost 34,000; there’s been quite a bit of talk surrounding HBO’s alleged four prequel shows for George R.R. Martin’s series, but it looks like the earliest we’ll get to see one is 2022.

Other series on the list have already made comebacks, but some of them left a few loose ends untied or open to interpretation—Gilmore Girls and Twin Peaks, for example—giving audiences a reason to hope there might be yet another season on the way.

And then, of course, there are plenty of perpetually popular shows that still haven’t been (and might never be) rebooted. Steve Carell has said in the past that a revival of The Office, fifth on the list, is a bad idea, and creator Greg Daniels thinks it’s highly unlikely.

See the top 25 list below, and pass the time while you’re waiting for your favorite show to return to TV with these 50 great series to binge-watch.
