Shock Collar Question - December 21

Brooke is wearing the Shock Collar this morning!

Today's question: Traditions around the holidays can be bizarre. We put lights outside, bring trees inside, it’s a beautiful mess.... and today I’m going to tell you about the origins behind one specific Christmas practice and you have to identify what tradition I’m talking about. 

It first started in medieval Germany, where children awaited gifts from Odin, the all-powerful Norse God who traveled on his eight-legged horse name “Sleipner.” Fast forward a few hundred years.... this same tradition came to American homes during the Great Depression, where Parents used it as a way to teach their kids to be show gratitude and humility to others, even when money might be tight. Nowadays it's still done by millions of families every year. What tradition am I talking about?
