Ours would have to be sleep. NO ONE in my family actually slept at night: my brother sleepwalked, I have insomnia and sleep paralysis, my sister has night terrors, my mom was an insomniac too – so I just thought everyone’s family spent the night in various states of weirdness

Cleaning the entire house before going anywhere because you wouldn’t want to come home to a messy house. You really can’t be spontaneous, and everybody had to clean. Sometimes it was easier just to stay home, cause the cleaning could take hours.

Quite a wholesome oddity: grew up believing that you could never destroy a wild mushroom because that was a fairy’s home. Came from my mum, and her mum, and at least two more generations of her family. To this day I never step on mushrooms in forests or gardens.

For minor injuries, our mum would say tell us to give it a little smack so it would stop hurting. Apparently, selective corporal punishment is not a well-known trauma management strategy.

On Christmas morning my family took turns opening gifts. Even when we were young kids we still opened one gift per round, youngest to oldest. To this day when I’m around people opening holiday gifts all at once I feel such anxiety!
