Well, in my parts we do try to do/avoid certain things. Dressing a little nicer is one of them. Boys wear white shirts to cheder, girls also wear white shirts to school rather than their uniform shirts. Laundry and heavy cleaning – like the floors, is also something we don’t usually do, although when it’s a 2-day R”Ch, I really can’t wait to do some of the laundry for both days, so I at least try to keep one of the days laundry-free. I also know families who have a special R”Ch meal, usually fleishig, something that they wouldn’t usually have during the week. I’m not sure of the mekor of this, but I’m supposed to be seeing someone tomorrow who might be able to tell me, if I don’t forget to ask.
