Twitter users share all the weird things their family does
Is your family very weird in their own unique, specific way? Well, join the club. Twitter users are sharing all the quirky family traditions that they once thought were very normal and then realized were definitely, definitely not. One of them involves exclusively storing potatoes in the dryer. Another involves a family “cuss out” meal. Hopefully, you’re already feeling much, much less alone.
The sharing circle began when podcast host Georgia Hardstark took to Twitter and put out a call-to-action. “What’s a weird thing your family did that you thought was normal till you moved out? We kept birthday candles in the freezer,” she wrote.
Well, ask and you shall receive. A lot. 2,000 responses and counting poured in, which means a huge swath of the Twitterverse had some pretty bizarre tales to tell (in the most loving way possible, of course).
For example, it turns out that a lot of families use their dishwasher/oven/laundry appliances as a very useful storage space.
In one household, Santa Claus was unseated by some beloved animals, both past and present.
Speaking of holidays, there were some pretty unusual celebrations out there that you’ve probably never heard of — but definitely will want to adopt immediately. Like, we should probably all insist on getting gifts from the Valentine’s Day Frog from now on.
Jesus got his very own dessert in this household.
Lots of families came up with their own unique names for the television remote.
Also, the family that curses together definitely stays together.
And, honestly, who hasn’t drunk from the water faucet at some point? Though, maybe this is a tradition best done in the bosom of your own family.
Flatulence had a lot, a lot of different creative names. “Pimp” definitely takes the cake.
So, basically, we’re all a bunch of weirdos and should probably just embrace it at this point. Also, the world might be a happier place if we all implemented other people’s weirdness into our own lives. Count me in for the family cussing session.
