Famous Jewish joke…
Question: How do you explain Jewish holidays?
Answer: They tried to kill us. We survived. Let’s eat.
So, does one have a divorce party? Marriage tried to kill me (not really, but I’m going with a metaphor here, people), I survived, let’s eat.
Do you give favors? Play pin-the-tail (or substitute some part of a man’s anatomy) on-the-ex? Eat cupcakes? Open presents?
Do you make it more meaningful? Institute some kind of ritual where your guests make wishes for you? That sounds kind of, um, mushy.
I dunno. At one time I felt like having one, but now I’m not so sure. It feels kind of anti-climatic.
I like the eating part, though.
