How to Ensure a Prosperous New Year.


Everyone in my family is pretty damned funny.  My sister likes to start traditions in our family, and 14 years ago, shortly before she had our First Annual Christmas Weenie Roast (I don't know that we had more than one), she created the tradition of The Christmas Snake.

It goes thusly:
If you wake up Christmas morning with a bed full of snakes, you will have a prosperous and happy New Year... if you don't die of fright, from waking up with a bed full of (rubber) snakes.



And this is probably why non-Christian funny people shouldn't be trusted to come up with Christmas traditions.

  2. Hahahah, that is one twisted tradition. Were you the unfortunate one who was "blessed" with a happy new year the first year of this tradition? Sisters. Le sigh.

  3. @Rae, I'm sure she will be thrilled I have passed it on to the internets. You also need to know that the recipient of the good fortune gets to place the snakes the next year.

    @Gia- Yes.

    @Alan- No... but for the safety of the snakes, they should not be killable.
