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:)
