What is the weirdest Holiday tradition you have heard of?

Do you hang a pickle on your tree? Do you put out wooden shoes or have your kids dress like 3 Kings and go singing and begging for money?

One thing we do is Snap Dragons. It's an old English tradition where you put dry fruit in a cauldron and hid a gold coin inside one of the pieces. You drown it in alcohol and then light it on fire and tell everyone to reach their hands in and pull out the pieces of fruit.  The one who finds the coin gets to keep it.

We change it a little... we stick a metal button in a piece of fruit and do it in a deep dish.  It's less hot then.  We also don't eat the fruit.. Gross!  Whomever finds the button gets to pick a prize.

What do you do or what have you heard of that is unique or odd... or plain crazy!  LOL
