I loathe christmas, the quicker it's over the better.

So I have 2 traditions: getting drunk and being miserable.

The thread is for Christmas traditions, as in at Christmas time. Not all year round.

My Christmas tradition is to pick a game and play it through to completion. Doesn't sound too different from the rest of the year but somehow it is since I do actually pick decent games to play. Fav Xmas so far is 1995 Doom Ps1 and 1997 Castlevania SOTN Ps1. TV doesn't get much of a look in during the festive period for that reason alone.
Also, Babysham, a real mans drink! :oops:

Strange you mention that, but the extended 9 minute version is the only one I play on the stereo- it's so atmospheric. I've got the original 12 inch disc from 1984 with it on too! Who would have thought a Ronald Reagan imitator doing the Lord's prayer would come off so well?

Not just any imitator, but Chris Barrie.

This one is normally a just after Christmas but before new year one for me.I also forgot about until it popped on the TV and the wife taped it for me and surprising me when I got in from work. Plus it stems back from when I was a kid and watched it with my dad every year, the worlds strongest man competition. Always loved watching it being amazed by the massive weights one guy can lift.
