Hah. My husband and I are going to TSO this year with my mom, but she did purchase the tickets, so it was an easier sell. 🙂

I am actually jealous, I love them. If it’s not your thing I would just say so.

OMG what is it with people and TSO?  My parents see TSO every year and they never stop talking about how we absolutely must must must see it.  I have ZERO interest in seeing it.  They always play the music at their house and it is so not for me!

Oh man, I remember when my Mom would not stop talking about Riverdance and dragged me to see it. She was SO into it, and I didn’t get it at all. Don’t get me wrong, I appreciate the whole dance art form thing but I was like “Yup, stomp stomp stomp, shirtless guy in a headband, ok…”

I had a friend who would try so hard to drag me to every single Irish fest ever. When “Fest Season” came along I seriously had to try to think up excuses as to why I couldn’t go. People are rabid about their traditions and that’s fine, but they also need to understand that what they’re into isn’t really everyone’s cuppa tea. For the record my mom’s a TSO person too. I just don’t get it.

And this is my dad’s most favorite thing EVER. He laughs at this every year.

@KatyElle: lol, sad face! I was the little girl who wanted to be on Riverdance soooooooooooo badly. I still love to find clips on youtube sometime……

DH’s parents took he and I to a TSO concert a few years ago and I really liked it, but I wouldn’t want to go every year.

I don’t know about traditions, per se but some keep trying to get me to die my hair red or pierce my ears. They should realize that I’m a stubborn donkey on stuff like that. The more you push me to do it, the less chance there is of that happening!

Ooh I LOVE TSO! My mommy plays them every year! Our thing is really more The Nutcracker, and SO HAS to watch “The Christmas Story” at least 10 times during the holiday time and definitely while he opens presents. (I swear I’m not a pedo dating a 9 year old).

I’d have to say though, the worst thing about the holidays is that both SO and I come from separated parents and my “dad”, who has now been demoted to mom’s ex-husband and no longer is in my life, would complain that we HAD to see him the day OF holidays, knowing SO and I still had 3+ other families to see around that time. Unfortunately, our tradition in my family is to be untraditional and celebrate when we can, and he would always get so butt-hurt if we didn’t schedule time for him THAT day. 

I’m so glad we don’t have to deal with that this year.

@KatyElle: BAHHAHAHAHAH LORD OF THE DANCE. I remember when that was big! I tried to mimic it as a kid in the kitchen since we had hardwood floors and my dad told me to ‘stop all that damn stomping!’.

 @janie-janie: I would be so sick of it. I’d probably one day just lose it and freak out. “I dont want to go to the CONCERT!!”.

Ahhhh no traditions to talk about here, but this brings up bad memories of a guy I dated once who was a closet TSO fan. The first time he invited me over, I found myself greeted by posters of the TSO all over his apartment, with TSO music playing. Needless to say, that one fizzled… lol.
