After this episode of The List Show, you’ll want to pencil in time to throw roasted soybeans at your uncle, take in the wonders of carved radishes, and recognize the majesty of the farm-raised catfish. Erin (@erincmccarthy) explains those holidays and more as she breaks down 18 Weird & Wonderful Holidays To Celebrate in The New Year, just in time for New Year's Day.
