What are your "snow day" superstitions?

Just a fun thread to see what superstitions your school/students have for requesting a snow day!

My students say you have to say "boom, boom for snow!", wear your PJs inside out, and put a potato by your alarm clock!

this is too cute! I had never heard of this until relocating farther north. Is the snow dance something special?

While wearing your PJ's turn twice clockwise, then twice counterclockwise!

1. Put a spoon under your pillow (silver works best!)
2. Wear your PJ's inside out.
3. Flush an ice cube down the toilet for every person sleeping in your house that night.

Does it work? Who knows. Is it fun to hear the stories of the kids doing this? You bet!

Too cute, I've never heard of these before despite living in an area that gets about three snow days a year. We are expecting snow tomorrow through wed, going to put my pjs on backwards now!

Cute.
I have never heard any of my students talk about superstitions for wanting a snow day and I live in an area that receives snow.

Since we are supposed to get snow the next couple of days I'm going to have to ask them tomorrow.

do the jammies inside out as well-but everyone in the class has to do it, or it doesn't happen. THey all come in the next day playing detectives to see who did'nt turn their jammies inside out. It's hysterical.

We do exactly what Room205 said with one exception. My students didn't tell me it was one ice cube for every person! No wonder it didn't work!!!!!!!!!!!

Oh, yeah. As one kid left today, he said the pjs have to be inside-out and backwards!

On the morning announcements, our PRINCIPAL reminds all the kids to wear their pajamas inside out when the forecast is for a snowstorm, so you know we're all hoping it's on it's way to us!!!

Two of our classes did a snow dance in the Supt's office today. It was a blast! Everyone loved it. I hadn't heard about the ice cube in the toilet today, but you bet I'll be doing it tonight!

licking a spoon?

that's the superstition that the kids left school with today! They will be licking both sides and putting as many spoons as they can for a snow day. (Although it has been called off already! Very unusual!) Never heard of that one until today!

We don't do them anymore! It used to be so fun. We wore our pjs inside out and put spoons under our pillows. But then when we woke up the next day and had to go to school after all.........the girls were MISERABLE about it!!!

So we stopped. And now I don't even mention to them that we might have a snow day the next day. And if we do, then it's a huge surprise!

My mother always told me to chew on an old 9 volt battery, Mix up a batch of brownie batter and put it down my underpants, put raw egg inside my ear, put mustard between my toes, stick a frozen pickle inside the mailbox, feed my dog a catipiller but most important, put a head of cabbage under my pillow.

jammies inside out and backwards, spoon under the pillow, and ice cubes down the toilet. Tomorrow is snow day 3 in a row so I guess my daughter's work worked!
