How to pronounce costume, custom and customs.

As you probably know, one of my passions (slash, obsessions) is to find words that share similar spelling but are pronounced differently.

The timing of this week’s triplet is not a coincidence.
Costume:
Today is the Jewish holiday Purim, and in this holiday we’re supposed to dress up and wear costumes (and when I say we I mean, not me)

Custom:
Well, wearing costumes is a custom.

Customs:
I really, really have the urge to travel abroad. And there’s nothing that smells more like abroad than the smell of… customs:)
