Special: A term to make sure everyone is going to waste that week out in field circus. If they can get the whole congregation to blow off work and waste 50 or 60 hours on the hounder-hounder, plus keep them from skipping boasting sessions, of course they are going to call it a "special week". To me, it is no big deal. It just means wasting more time with boasting sessions that can end as late as 11 PM or even later, and taking more than 45 minutes to go out in field circus (I was told that 15 was the limit).
To me, a truly special week is when I see half the landscape lit up for Christmas. Or, when I order major items such as large numbers of batteries (the expensive Eneloop kind), chargers, flashlights, LED light bulbs, L.L. Bean clothing, Christmas lights, silver, and quality items at once. That is genuinely special since it means I could go a good 20 years of hyperinflation before needing new items, and they will last several days in the event of blackouts before needing recharging. And it is always special to get things that are going to last me 20 years on items that traditionally last about 6 months before ending up in the rubbish--with money that "should be given back to joke-hova".
