We actually don’t have a lot of traditions in the Snake Den. Or at least not ones that I consider strange.
The strangest one that we have, and I’ve talked about it before, is Christmas Eve. While the vast majority of the Christmas celebrators are going to church or madly wrapping or finding that last gift, you will find us (most years) at a movie theatre.
If we can plan it perfectly, we see two. It depends on the timing and how lazy we are getting out of the house. And how long each movie is. It is the ultimate Christmas Eve when we can make it work, though.
Then, we pick up pizza on the way home. No fancy ham or turkey dinner for Christmas Eve. It is always at least two because I always get the vegetarian one–yes, I’m weird–and Snake usually gets a deluxe one. The leftovers are usually lunch on Christmas day.
Then we head home to check out the progress of Santa on NORAD–yes, nerds as well as weird. Pizza is consumed on paper plates which are always bits and pieces left over from Christmas dinner when lots of people would come over. They don’t match and that’s always part of the tradition.
After the massive clean-up of throwing away the paper plates and wrapping up the leftovers, it is time to read Christmas books. Not the Night Before Christmas, but Auntie Claus, Eloise, Santa’s Twin and Christmas Trolls. And The Lump of Coal.
Strange? Maybe. But, definitely us.

Pizza is my love language. ❤
(And I don’t eat meat, so I don’t think your veggie pizza is weird.)
I can’t eat pepperoni or sausage so….
But I’ve always preferred veggie
It sounds like the perfect tradition to me 😄
No family, no fuss and you’re doing what you love. Sounds great 😊
It really is
Love Pizza – and vegie Pizza is my fave
It’s the best
I like the sound of your Christmas Eve – you guys in a little bubble just suiting yourself. I think pre-children we were a lot like this.
Going to the cinema is one of my favourite treats, we often have pizza before we go, but not too big a meal because husby & I LOVE our cinema snacks so we take care to leave room for popcorn and chocolate.
Thanks for sharing your traditions … and your Christmas themed books, I shall check them out!
We love our popcorn too
