Among the Amish communities I lived in we occasionally did a fun challenge that revolved around the initial of your first name.
In school we would have a day in February where the challenge was to do nothing that didn't begin with your initial. Unfortunately my name begins with an M, and while other children had a math free day, there was no such luck for me. I could only read books beginning with M, and recess I spent time playing Memory or Monopoly with anyone else that shared my initial.
I don't know what it was with this challenge, but it carried over into the ladies monthly work days when they would gather at someone's house to help out with what ever needed to be done. Though not as large scale as the challenge was at school it focused only on the menu. Occasionally everyone was encouraged to bring a dish that started with their own initial, while other times everyone was supposed to bring a dish that started with their hostess initials.
I never asked anyone to do that with my initial. I could see the entire community show up with a mac-n-cheese casserole.
I used to wish my name would begin with anything other than an M on those days, but now I'm wondering how many others felt the same way about the letter they had.
