Any Weird Holiday Traditions?

Posted by: Frank Giaramita (12/25/05)
I just wanted to personally wish everyone a happy holiday and apologize to those who have been trying to have news posted through me. It's been very tough this past week with the holidays and my grandma's recent visit to the hospital. Expect more out of me when the weekend closes out. On a completely different note, and out of curiosity, what kind of holiday traditions exist in your family?

I have younger siblings and since "Santa" doesnt visit them any more since theyre too old for it they make everyone stay up until midnight to open presents then go to bed. Kinda stupid. I tried to go to sleep this year and they wouldnt let me

We go see a movie on Christmas Eve

We go to my grandmother's for Christmas Breakfast which is the shit because my mom makes some sort of egg, cheese, bacon, and sausage casserole which she only makes once a year (which pisses me off) since its the only time I ever eat breakfast.

THE PICKLE...my mom hides a plastic pickle in the tree xmas morning then the 4 of us boys try to look for it. the person who finds it gets a best buy gift card..last year we all found it at once and it broke...so this year we have a new one...i'm getting pumped..i'm gonna win this year...is that just me?


We go to kansas city to my aunts house for a christmas eve party, then back home to sleep (and wrap last minute gifts). I have 3 older brothers who all live far away (Boston, San Fran, New york city)...and this is the only time of the year when all 6 of our family members are together. it's wonderful

Wow, I've never met anyone who does that too. We do the same thing, except its not plastic but glass, which makes the whole thing a little more dangerous. And I never win. I'm not sure if we're doing it this year, though.
