My son is approaching his third birthday. My wife and I have decided to
honor the custom of my Hungarian/Chassidic ancestors, and not cut his hair
until his third birthday, when we will have an upsherin
ceremony/celebration. I've been searching for information about this
custom, but have been unable to locate anything. Any source material you
can direct me to, or any explanation or understanding of this custom which
you can provide, would be most appreciated.

Thank You.
