This is a question Family codes and rituals

Freddy Woo writes, "as a child we used to have a 'whoever cuts doesn't choose the slice' rule with cake. It worked brilliantly, but it's left me completely anal about dividing up food - my wife just takes the piss as I ritually compare all the slice sizes."

What codes and rituals does your family have?

Christmas Doors
One Christmas Eve my Dad thought it would be a good idea to put a new front door in. It was a little cold, but there were no great dramas - the timing was just a little inappropriate.
From then on every Christmas Eve there would be the standing joke about which door was going to get it that year.

Dad passed away two years ago, but in my own special homage I have taken down, or knocked down a doorway on both Christmas Eves since. Last year my Mum came around and just gave me a knowing smile.

Perhaps not a ritual - but a tradition non the less - and there are plenty more doorways in this house......!
