The Upsherin is Done!

My son recently turned 3 so we flew in to NY for his upsherin , a ceremonial haircut which is not to be confused with ushpizin the guests that arrive to visit us on sukkos ( a little Yiddish humor). My wife's grandfather had actually managed to evade the Nazis by being a barber.It was therefore befitting to make the trip and allow her grandfather the nachas (joy) of cutting his grandson's hair.
My son was greeted by a new pair of tzitzis and yarmulke thus giving him the look of a "big boy" and he was given many a toy (which we now have to shlep back). All in all a very joyous and momentous occasion that we all enjoyed.
