I go through my initiation on Thursday with The Villages Masonic Lodge No. 394 in Florida.

Any advice? Looking forward to it!

Don't use Google until then unless you're holiday shopping or something, take it as serious as you can (no jocularity even if the 'senior' members are doing so. Be a good mason, be a good example), be patient if members forget their lines, start meditating and get plenty of rest over the next week to have an open, clear mind. Enjoy the show.

Congratulations on your upcoming initiation. Let us know how it goes. Try to take it all in but don't worry if you feel overwhelmed. You'll have years to unpack everything.

Thanks y’all. It was very interesting to say the least! I was highly impressed by how seriously the members and especially the Lodge Officers took the initiation. Great experience!

It wasn’t! I was especially impressed by the flawless lecture given by a Past Master that had to have been in his upper 70’s, maybe early 80’s. It was awesome.

I didn't mean to imply it was anything but serious. Just attempted to point out that your perception of how the ritual was carried out was as it should be.
