Melbourne Cup

Every year, Australia stops for a horse race called the Melbourne Cup. One of the traditions that have evolved around this horse race is that of wearing outlandish hats. This used to be a female tradition, but men have since joined in, usually with variants on the theme of alcohol consumption. My office had a Melbourne Cup lunch and conducted a Melbourne Cup hat competition. One of the categories was for the most unusual hat, and I entered a hat with a plush horse as the centrepiece. I won! It was the first time I've ever won anything (just about) so I was taken quite by surprise.
