"We Run A Marathon On Christmas Day" (& Other Weird Family Traditions)

One of the best parts of Christmas is making traditions. Every family, adopted family or group of loved ones has at least one that's come from years of collective oddness.
For some, it involves fancy dress that's continued from childhood into adulthood, for others it's a yearlong tactical plan on how to win at Trivial Pursuit, and for others still it's something altogether more bizarre.
We asked team Refinery29 UK for their weird Christmas traditions and found out that no two Christmases look the same.
