This is a question Weird Traditions

Talking with a friend yesterday about school dinners, she suddenly said, "We had to march into the dining room behind the School Band... except on Thursdays." Since all of us were now staring, she qualified this with, "...on Thursdays there was no wind section. It was a tradition."

What weird stuff have you been made to do "because it's a tradition."

Talking of Christmas traditions
My very good friend (I'll call her Jo, for that is her name) and I decided one year many moons ago that we would book a whole day off during the week and go Christmas shopping on Oxford Street "to avoid the crowds" (didn't work). Anyway, after we had been in 1 or 2 shops and bought mainly stuff for ourselves, we decided to stop for an early lunch in that bar in Selfridges (was only about midday by then) and because it was Christmas, we thought we'd treat ourselves to a glass of wine with our lunch. Seeing as we knew we'd have a couple of glasses each, we thought it wise to get a bottle. After we'd had that, we thought it would be fun to get another bottle. And another. You can see where this is going can't you. No more shopping was done that day and we were drunk as lords by 8pm.

Every year since then we have booked a day off "to go Christmas shopping and avoid the crowds" and have just headed straight for Selfridges bar. It's great!!!
