Do you like it better when Shabbos starts and ends early, or when it starts and ends late?November 20, 2011 1:59 am at 1:59 am #827942chocandpatienceMember
with little kids, late is hard work at both ends.November 20, 2011 2:19 am at 2:19 am #827943mazal77Participant
I like it when Shabbos starts early. I love that cosy warm feeling of Shabbat winter nights. Having hot soup (don’t make soup in the summer) there is more time to spend around the table. Love it.November 20, 2011 2:21 am at 2:21 am #827944mik5Participant
but how do you have time to prepare everything, assuming that you go to work on erev Shabbos?November 20, 2011 2:25 am at 2:25 am #827945oomisParticipant
LOVE IT, LOVE IT, LOVE IT! I am ready for Shabbos by Thursday anyhow, and it gives me a whole evening to relax and unwind. Much better for me than Shabbos in the summer time. When the days are long, I cannot relax, because my neighbors’ kids are all outside playing and being what kids usually are meant to be, loud and noisy. On Friday nights at this time of year, however, all is calm and quiet. AAAAAHHHHHHHHH!November 20, 2011 3:00 am at 3:00 am #827946mazal77Participant

I love early shabbosim. The kids are up for the Friday night meal, and I still have a long quite night after the seuda.
Mik5 – prepare everything Thursday night.November 20, 2011 3:54 am at 3:54 am #827950TheGoqParticipant

Starting early is good but i want shabbos to end later. i don’t like it that shabbos is over at like 5:30November 20, 2011 5:36 am at 5:36 am #827952WIYMember
Guess what, there’s an inyan of Tosfos Shabbos adding on to Shabbos by having a long shalosh seudos and ending Shabbos late. (Chassidim do this but there are also some Yeshiva that end Shabbos at 72 also)
So in reality its up to you when to end Shabbos. Maybe ask your husband/parents if they can Bli Seder start ending Shabbos later. Shabbos is beautiful and its nice to see that there are some people who appreciate it and want more Shabbos as opposed to trying to Daven as early as possible…
