Memory + Tradition

With Passover quickly approaching, it's time to wrap up loose ends. And while waiting here at my barber shop, I'm getting ready to take care of one of those very loose ends.

How's this for a tradition: for around the next 33 days, (some? most? A few?) Jews don't get haircuts. The reason for this is a bit hard to tap out on my sidekick, so I'll just say we do it as a small sign of mourning to remember a long ago plague.

Regardless, my hair cutter from Argentina thinks this is basically loco. But, she goes along with my request, and will cut it nice and short.

So, when you see me with the extra short hair cut, you'll know why. Ahhh, the things we do for tradition and memory.
