Christmas Traditions, Moron Style

So here is a weird non-political thread for you: what are some of the truly bizarre Christmas traditions you and your family partake in?

Mine is slightly evil, but pays off every time: the gift-inside-a-box-inside-a-box-inside-a-box tradition.

When I was a kid, my siblings and I tore through our gifts in about 5 minutes. I wanted the experience to last longer, so every subsequent Christmas I picked one of my siblings or parents at random, and would put their gift inside a small box and insert that into slightly larger and so on. My record before moving out was 11 layers of boxes, wrapping, and bags- unfortunately my sister was targeted that year and broke her wrist 4 days before Christmas.

Unless you bought your girlfriend or wife diamonds, I suggest against pranking them in this manner. Of course if you don't mind the doghouse for a bit, it is hilarious to see them tear through layer after layer after layer to get a gift card. Just hide any sharp objects and bullets.

So share your offbeat moron traditions here. No art thread today by the way, I am too busy with painting and a modification of the above tradition.
