Weird Christmas Traditions
My family has a habit of always having tamales around when it comes to Christmas time. We have gotten lazy and normally just buy the tamales. Part of it stems from an old joke and having something to unwrap on Christmas day, so tamales are always an option when it comes to a Yuletide snack.
My family normally sits down and watches a movie on Christmas Eve, where we all have to constantly remind each other that we don't have to yell at the T.V. Compared to others, we don't have any crazy family traditions. (I came to that conclusion after hearing some of my friends' crazy traditions.)
There is the classic Southern tradition. The men head to the deer lease and come back in time to shower for a Christmas Eve dinner.
A friend of mine says her mom always hides a pickle ornament on the Christmas tree, and whoever can find it earns an extra Christmas gift - a German tradition that families all over America have practiced for many generations.
Another friend of mine says that turning 21 is a huge deal because their family always does a Santa Run, where all of the family members over the age of 21 get dressed up as Santa and either run a 5K or bar crawl in their Santa suits.
Can this be a thing here, please? I just may start to run!
