<<Anyway, the contrast between the usages of the word "ceremony" interested me

It would seem that RYBS's definition of a ceremony is almost a tautology.
If it is anything of religious significance then its not a ceremony.
Otherwise who cares.
It is only modern customs that present a difficulty because we don't
establish new categories. In the old days customs like lighting the menorah
in shul or havdala in shul became invested with religious significance
because they were public customs

Question minyana d-yoma
Is the custom of "simanim" on RH a ceremony?
