You never know how weird your upbringing truly was until you're in a room of people with their mouths agape, completely confused by a story you thought was normal.

While every region has its cultural nuances, there are some traditions so specific to a town, no one outside a 5 mile radius will understand what you're referencing.

In a popular Reddit thread, people shared the bizarre hometown traditions they didn't know were weird until they left.

1. mcbarksore eventually realized "happy haircut day" isn't normal.

Happy haircut day. Anytime someone would get a haircut, if you noticed you would say "Happy Haircut Day" and the goal was to be the first one to say it to them. Didn't realize this wasn't a normal thing until college lol

2. MotherOfKrakens95 used to get free snacks all the time.

In my childhood neighborhood, you could go to one house and get a handful of candy, a different house for a soda, another house for a cookie and yet another for a popsicle. Most of these people didn't have their own children, only the cookie house had kids but I think they were Mennonite and homeschooled.
