  •  yes- the lottery! (8+ / 0-)

    that's what I was going to say.

    i'm an oddball, in that I don't do Halloween. I do every other holiday but that one. I was talking w/ a friend about it the other night. I figure just because everyone has always done it, doesn't mean I have to do it too.

    the lottery definitely impacted me.

      In fact, it is the only holiday that I do really celebrate - being dimly aware that Labor Day is this weekend or the next, or was it last weekend - for I am deeply affected by changes in the light and it's no accident that these particular customs accreted to this time of the year.  The dead walk close to the Earth at the end of October.

      The Lottery horrified me as a child, and I still talk about it forty years later.  I was disappointed that my children never encountered it in the schools, and The Hunger Games was a poor substitute.
