Here's one for you. Name the weirdest tradition from your school, either high school or college.

At UAF, the mining students have played "rock poker" to learn the rock types for over 80 years.

Uhm...the only thing I can think of as being "weird" is holding a Shabby Ball, which is a dance where you buy the worst clothes you can find at Goodwill and wear them...

It's actually kinda fun.

my family has tacos on Christmas eve.

At school: our swim team does an annual speedo run through our school and Xavier (the girls school).

We (the seniors) also play 4-square every day.

Every year, on the day of its final, the Jazz Band class sneaks out to go down to Jim's Coffee Shop to have breakfast/brunch.

This school tradition is believed to have started in the late sixties; in which the female school captain would flash the male school captain during their final assembly.

Though many modern-day captains have elected to don the fabled trenchcoat and only mock-flash whilst wearing a bikini.

It's funny none-the-less.
