Unique Family Traditions

As we are currently in the midst of that time of year called the holiday season, I’ve been thinking about family traditions.

My daughter and I have a number of “traditions” that we’ve picked up over the years.

Our traditions aren’t holiday related but they are amusing. ;-)



When the kid was in preschool, every Thursday was pizza day. When I would drop her off I would say, “Hasta La Pizza”. Even though she hasn’t gone to school there in years, we still say Hasta La Pizza to each other on Thursdays.

Somehow I started singing a modified version of the Goodnight song from the Lawrence Welk show to her at bedtime. I’m not even sure how I knew the song. I know I watched it a couple of times at my grandparent’s house when I was a kid but not enough for it to have stuck in my memory all these years. This video really makes me laugh – it is SO corny.

Alex’s Dad was a dancer when he was young and is still really good. So, he has introduced to her to old musicals that primarily feature Gene Kelly. This isn’t a complete tradition yet, but Alex sings this song so frequently that soon it will be. She is also learning the dance steps to this with her Dad.

How about you? Do you have a strange or bizarre things that you do with your kids or family?
