It's no secret I have been a pretty lazy blogger lately. I've decided to revive my blog with a series I'll call the "Twelve Days of Christmas Traditions" before Christmas day (even though "traditionally" the Twelve Days of Christmas start on Christmas day). It'll probably be more like twelve total posts of Christmas traditions, but I wanted to make sure you got the "Twelve Days of Christmas" reference (I apologize for insulting anyone's intelligence).
Besides all the usual American Christmas traditions - the lights, the tree, the holiday cookies, the gift-buying stress - I'm sure you all have personal family traditions of your own. I'm not sure, however, they can match the strangeness some of my family's Christmas traditions elicit. I'll start you off with some normal ones, then ease you into the uber-weird.
