My family has a tradition of feeding our dog a Baskin Robbins ice cream cone on her birthday, this going back to when my mom was little (the 1960's to be more exact). Does your family have any traditions others might see as odd?

My husband and I keep sabbath on Saturdays. We don't buy or sell or work or make others work from sundown Friday night, to sundown Saturday night. It's our religion and others think it's really weird.

We go to the same Chinese restaurant every x-mas eve. This year will be our 18th!

Chinese on Christmas? Forgive me if I'm wrong, but are you by chance....?

Actually, the first dog (back in the 60s) lived to 18, the second to about 13, the third (my first dog, although my parents got her 2 years before I was born) 13, and the current one is about 5 and 1/2.

Every time I ride a horse and see a Volkswagen, I punch the horse. Does that count?

Aside from the giant catapult in our back yard and the creepy glass clown that keeps getting passed around the extended family? Psh, hardly...

Well the catapult was originally going to be a fun Christmas Day project with Popsicle sticks and erasers, but it turned into a long project with 2x4s and rotting oranges. They do fly far, although we have trouble getting them to fly forward.

The clown... This is between my dad and his brother. Whenever they go to each others' house they hide the clown. This has also been done with a stuffed snake, old cassette tapes, a creepy lotion poster, and a horse shoe.

Birthdays and holidays are pretty much nonevents in my family. I suppose that's odd to most but I like it that way.

We've made it that way, too. Much less stressful. Good meals, though.

None I can think of. We're pretty typical, but I think giving the puppy an ice cream cone on her birthday is well within the normal range.

My parents wrap christmas presents for their dog and place them under the tree. On christmas morning they will open them for him while everyone is opening their presents.

We eat squirrel for Christmas every year. Been doing it for over 10 years.

Squirrel?

Yep. I grew up extremely poor. Most of our food we killed because we couldn't afford it. So it kinda just became a tradition. It tastes like chicken but really tuff.

Ok that makes sense. Please don't be offended if I don't eat squirrel.

We don't have any weird traditions. We are just bizarre all around.

We serve Mexican food on thanksgiving along with the traditional food I guess that's odd
