You all remember the « christmas creature feature » edition of the word corner. However, I missed something importent:
Not only will I include actual traditions, but also some from r/askreddit’s « weirdest christmas tradition » thread!
I bet at least 1 person reading this actually does this. The christmas pickle tradition consists of putting a pickle in your tree.
Okay. Jokes aside, the pickle is usually made of glass, but that’s no fun. When looking for a pickle, you should be able to track it by smell alone.
Of course, whoever finds the magic pickle first gets a reward or good luck, or just… A pickle. Yum! Glass!
This is a new year’s tradition! El home del nassos (the man of the noses in Catalan) is a guy with 365 NOSES. Every day, he loses another nose. Kids, on new year’s eve, have to go around looking for him. He’s easy to find, because he has a massive nose! no reward, no luck, no nothing. Just the satisfaction of capturing a freak of nature. You don’t even get to keep his nose.
This tradition from the phillipines is so specific, it just sounds like they ran out of ideas. They just… wear polka dots and eat round fruits. I have nothing to add about this, this is just funny.
Traditions from YOU! (disclaimer: not actually you) on reddit!
I have a family of 5 and when we visit my parents for Christmas they scatter all of the gifts across their 10 acres of wooded property. Last year i had to cut a rope to lower a gift down because it was suspended 30ft in the air.
Christmas Eve, after church service, the family loads up the dog and cat in the car and drives around looking at Christmas lights. We end it with a trip to Tastee Freeze to get a hamburger for the dog and a small vanilla ice cream for the cat. Humans don’t get anything.
We make a Six foot long burrito by laying down a lot of tortillas. Once all the food is on it we all gather around it and roll the burrito together as a family.
Alright QUIZ TIME! (this one’s easy)
HOW MANY GRAPES DO YOU EAT ON NEW YEAR’S EVE IN SPAIN?
You have to eat 12 grapes alone, like the 12 months of the year.
