You can’t choose your family, so naturally there are going to be qualities about your bloodline that you might find absurd—especially when it comes to family traditions. Whether it's a tradition that was conjured up out of thin air or a ritual done every holiday for generations, these stories shared on various Reddit threads prove that kindred rites are not all the same. 

Love them, hate them, but can't live without them.

1. Stregano has some badass aunts.

The aunts fight. I mean like literally fight.

They will get wasted and just get louder and louder and then one will shout something along the lines of, "You want to back that up?" and then they will go outside and fight.

We all watch and cheer for our favorite aunt to win and sometimes we will even video tape the fight so that we can watch it later and laugh about it.

It is pretty normal.

2. Castielteenwolf's mom is very competitive.

So my family plays this game where if someone is holding something and you yell “drop the bass” they have to drop what they’re holding so my mom was holding a carton of eggs so I yelled it and she looked me dead in the eye, dropped then eggs on the floor and whispered, “you’ve gone too far.”
