My family has always had interesting Holidays, especially when my sister was alive. She was a little weird and so was her husband. I am being rather kind using the word weird but we loved her dearly.

For example, when I was around 12 my sister came to visit from back east. My mom was fixing a ham in the kitchen and had just set it out on the counter for serving later. My weird sister came over to see what was going on. She lived about 2 blocks away.

My nephew and I were sitting on the couch playing. My sister wanted a slice of ham and my mother said "no, wait and come over for dinner and everybody can eat and visit". My sister got mad, picked up the hot ham, and threw it against the wall. Needless to say we were all wide eyed and petrified sitting on the couch.
