There are different schools and traditions all over the world, and most of the time they don’t make headlines. But, there are some schools with strange traditions that can only be explained by the people who participate in them! From a questionable tradition involving a priest, to a school’s tradition of spreading mono, these are 10 most bizarre school rituals! In 2012, a school in Lubin, Poland came under fire after they post photos of their bizarre school ritual to their website.
The photos show teenagers licking cream off the head priest’s knees. The long- standing tradition is the initiation process for incoming freshman of the school. The school’s administration was shocked by the negative reactions to the photos, because no one had ever complained about the strange tradition. The Students and fans of University of Pennsylvania’s football team have found an interesting way to celebrate their team. During the 3 rd quarter they throw pieces of toast towards the field. The tradition started in the 1970’s when the school made a decision to ban alcohol sales at their stadium. So, instead of fans raising their glasses during a 3 rd quarter toast to the team lead by a song by the band, fans and students instead throw toast! The tradition has taken a life of it’s own, and now students stock pile bread to save up for the “Toast Toss”.
Every year during the first full moon after classes start at Stanford University, students participate in the University sanctioned tradition of “Full Moon On The Quad”. The tradition is a way to welcome the freshman class to their new school. It involves upper classman kissing the lower classman at midnight during the first full moon. “Full Moon On The Quad” has come under fire for causing “kissing disease” or mono to be spread throughout the Stanford campus the following week after.
