This source applies whether you are alone or not. I am looking for a perspective specifically in front of others.

comment Nudity at home?
I apologise if my question is a bit unclear. I am principally looking for source texts or tradition on the subject. I assume it is bad or frowned on and I am expecting to see answers supporting that, but I would welcome sources who disagree.

comment What's wrong with 'Hip Hip Hooray'?
I have certainly heard it at birthday parties before. If it's antiquated then South Africa just hasn't noticed. :-) The more religious the family or the crowd the less chance of it being said.
