Whether your parents are your favorite people, or they utterly confound you, childhood was bizarre for most of us in some small way.
Every family has traditions and quirks that don't exist outside the four walls of the home, and while many of them are so subtle they're barely noticeable, some memories can only be looked back on with a quizzical brow.
As adults, the good and bad from childhood is much easier to parse, and the rules and behaviors we believed to be "normal" are often exposed as specific to our parents.

Celebrate Children's Day. i always thought it was normal because there's a Mother's and Father's day, right? Apparently, most people don't even know when it is.
