Odd Holiday Traditions

We were just talking about the weird things we do at Christmas. I got to wondering if it was just us or if everyone has something a bit odd that they keep as a tradition.

Our weird thing is a silly string fight. One year Santa put silly string in everyone's stocking. SOMEONE started the fight , and its become a tradition. We have pictures of all our pets covered in silly string.

I get a frozen lobster in my stocking every year. It started because Santa couldn't think of anything for my stocking, until he/she saw the lobsters.

OMG! That's a great one! I used to get a can of smoked oysters and a jar of green olives. I loved that! My Santa thinks that's a bit gross though. LOL.

I would love that, too! My Santa thinks it's gross, too. Now I get a gift card so I can go buy a lobster.

I grab a pair of tongs in each hand, put on my old welding hood, some scuba flippers on my feet, strip nekkid and deliver a bag of peanut brittle to each of my neighbors' mail boxes at 3 in the morning.
OK, not really. I don't do anything odd on the holidays. Not any more than usual

You'd be surprised at the people I run into doing the same thing!

And as the nekkid flippered Santa Pac slides down the chimney, tongs in hand, he gently places a frozen lobster tail, a jar of olives, and a small bag of peanut brittle in each and every stocking. Oysters are too expensive this year.

And to all, a good night.
