here comes the kallah
The wedding ceremony I attending yesterday combined Christian and Jewish traditions. This is maybe the third such ceremony I've attended. I don't know about others raised in the Christian tradition, but what this combination has basically come to mean to me is part-"default-ceremony" and part-way-cooler-and-more-interesting-rituals-than-what-you-get-in-the-"default-ceremony"-ceremony. For that matter, at the reception, I've found I much prefer watching the bride and groom hoisted around on chairs to watching progressively more guests get dragged into a dance where they are supposed to wag their arms like a chicken.
