Well, how do you fare compared to the Zeitgeist? Chat up your fellow wooters and let us know how lame this poll was or what obvious choices we missed. For example: Was this poll a) STUPID, b) DUMB, c) POINTLESS or d) ALL OF THE ABOVE?

When I was younger a friend got married in a HUGE Italian wedding in Long Island. His uncles all handed him cash in the COOLEST way. He would walk up to him, shake his hand, pull him close and whisper something in his ear. Then he would give him an envelope. I asked Anthony later how much he got, but he would only smile. Since then I do the same for my family members. Very cool way to send them off on a new life.

Thanks to up-to-the-minute tracking, I don't track my package so much as stalk it.

I don't understand. Does the smile depend on an amount? Is it a promise of resources? Connections?

What if the uncle and maybe an auntie are poor. Would hope he would still smile with appreciation. For the generosity may be disproportionate to the amount.

I like to give a gift card to one of the places the couple is registered.

It was never about the amount of money. It was them giving him hints and tips about marriage that he said were invaluable. It was a sign of love and respect.
