I was just at a local toy shop in Boro Park.
The lady in front of me was in a serious conversation with the owner regarding his new Upsherin Registry.
It seems like this was going to be her second upsherin, and knew from experience that the amount of gifts her child receives is just overwhelming.
Crazy? I think so.
What do the experts think?
Why is it crazy?
its just a tad over-gashmiusdikified. im sure if youd ask a rebbe from 20 years ago theyd laugh in your face. abee to get some silver.
When my son turned 3, he got gifts just like he got for his other birthdays, with 2 exceptions – one family member got him a few pairs of tzitzis, and a close friend bought him 3 kippot. Other than that, it was the same as his first and second birthdays.
Oh, and more people came to the party.
If you want to get an appropriate gift that you know no one else will bring, get hairclips. With rhinestones, if you’re fancy.
You still havn’t answered why it’s ‘crazy’…LOl!!
Are you asking if the idea of such a registry is crazy?
The wording of the OP seems to imply that the overwhelming number of gifts is what might be crazy.
yes, so overwhelming indeed, that a registry where the child can pick out his gifts in advance is the only way to keep things in order.
