Fake Traditions

Fake Traditions
England
has many strange, yet real, traditions such as
  • Bog Snorkelling, 
  • Bonfire Night, 
  • Cheese Rolling
  • Haxey Hood.
For less than $1 you can read This book  which describes 40 made-up traditions in a similar vein to the real ones. The question is: are the Fictional Traditions I created any sillier than the real ones?
Is chasing a Cheese down a 1 in 4 slope any more ridiculous than Walking a Weasel around a path once a year?  Is eating nettles any stranger than carving cheese into shapes? Is snorkelling in a cold Welsh bog any odder than trying to catch an arrow fired high into the air.
In the above questions the real tradition is first and the fictional tradition is second.
I created these fictional traditions so people can see how strange the true traditions of England are and to understand that truth is indeed stranger than fiction?
