At the start of this chapter, the whole community is going to the auditorium to watch a bunch of ceremonies.  There are going to be a lot of different ceremonies that will take place on this particular evening, but the most important of these is going to be the Ceremony of Twelve.

The ceremonies happened only once each year.  On those days, the whole community would go to the Auditorium to participate.  There were ceremonies ranging from the Naming (where newchildren are given names) to the Ceremony of Twelve.  In this ceremony, all of the kids who are reaching age 12 are assigned to the jobs that they will hold for all of their working lives.
