Today I am a man
A good friend of mine had her birthday recently and although I had already picked her gift, I felt like it still needed something. While at the market, I noticed a free Bar Mitzvah publication. It was meant to be a guide, with topics ranging from the history of the Bar Mitzvah, what to wear and who to invite to the celebration. The intentions of the publication were good, but it was a little cheesy. It was a great read.
I decided to make her a Bar Mitzvah book taking the quotes from this magazine. It was a lot of fun and was also very educating. The first thing I learned was that it’s a Bat Mitzvah if it’s for a female. I guess I should be writing Bar/Bat Mitzvah, but who’s checking really? I also learned that ‘party dresses, no matter how fancy the affair, should offer a degree of modesty’. Great stuff. Next up is the Quinceañera book…
