You’re Invited

November 3, 2010

I don’t know what I was thinking of when I sent out old-fashioned, tree-killing paper invitations to my older two sons’ bar mitzvahs in 2007 and 2009.

It’s the 21st century, for crying out loud. We have email. We have evites.

It’s 2010 and we have YouTube, as a creative Israel bar mitzvah boy named Eyal has reminded us.

I might just follow Eyal’s lead when it’s time to send out the invites to my youngest son’s bar mitzvah. But that will be in 2014 and by then, YouTube will undoubtedly be so yesterday.

Anyone out there venturing to guess what the bar mitzvah invitation trend will be 4 years from now? I imagine it will be something like telepathic delivery.
