    What do you do on Shabbos? Guests, no guests? See friends, stay in? I personally like to socialize. What do you do

    I sometimes go out to soem family to eat the meals with them but I also enjoy just being by myself with no one to answer to in any way where I can be up or sleep as I choose unlike during the work week, where I have to be up at a certain time and most of my day is taking orders from bosses.

    Shabbos is family time in my house. No work. Kids get to spend time with tatty and mommy, and we get to visit zeidy and bubby!!

    so true, especially these days when we are busy, it’s important to spend time with family

    I love to invite company for Shabbos. There is an elderly man in my neighborhood who lives alone. We invite him very often, though he actually sometimes just prefers his solitude. I have friends who come quite often, and my married daughter lives close enough to me that she can walk over for a lunch, but far enough that she feels she has privacy. They have an open invitation. My kids also always knew that our house is open to their friends any time. Even when it gets a little crowded, I love the company.

    We tend to socialize with the same group of friends every Shabbat. I do have one particular Shabbat practice though it’s not a hard and fast rule. I prefer wearing colored shirts on Shabbat. I think they are nicer than plain white. Thus I save them for Shabbat or Yom Tov.

    You’re not embarrassed to write on YW that you wear colored shirts on Shabbos?

    Some people have no shame….LOL

    I wear fancy suits on Shabbos, never a robe.

    (Because I don’t own one. :))

    i want to speak only Ivris on Shabbos when I have my own home.

    I agree with Cantoresq about the colored shirts. They are much shtottier than most plain white shirts, especially when coupled with a nice suit and tie.

    I have a Shabbos robe that looks like a fancy dress, and that is for Friday night.

    My minhag is, wine b4 challah, fish b4 soup, cholent b4 bed, bed b4 1:00.

    Guests when ok with the balabusta, friends every Shabbos night,

    I have a chavrusah.

    Socializing is ok, but the schmoozing tends to end up with loshon hora

    better add bed b4 friends. especially shabbos which is so holy you don’t want to

    spend it yenta-ing away. If you just have nice positive conversations, cheers!

    We always try to invite friends or relations over. Of course, they don’t always come. Sometimes we have pizza on Friday eve, in order to help make the sabbath special.

    My “minhag” is that sometimes I nap, sometimes I learn, sometimes I spend time with the kids, sometimes we have friends over and sometimes we go out to friends.

    Since I’m constantly changing my “minhag,” do I have to do hataras nedarim every week? 🙂

    We usually have guests for the meals- and also during the meals we have neighbors/friends/relatives popping in, sometimes joining us for dessert, and sometimes just to visit. Its really nice, and leaves the afternoon with time for napping!

    cantoresq – “I do have one particular Shabbat practice though it’s not a hard and fast rule. I prefer wearing colored shirts on Shabbat. I think they are nicer than plain white. Thus I save them for Shabbat or Yom Tov.”

    I too have a minhag to save my better suits for Shabbat or Yom Tov and colored shirts would just not due them justice. My colored shirts do go well with my work suits.

    As it happens cherrybim I too save my better suits for Shabbat or Yom Tov. But if I have a VERY big court appearance or meeting I might break the rule. As to the shirts, you’re right there are times when a white shirt is a must. But a regular Shabbat, especially Friday night when I wear slacks and a blazer to schul (yes with a tie), I go with the colors.

    Cantoresq – Sorry, but there is no regular Shabbos; every Shabbos is special, awesome, delightful and wonderful. By the way, I too wore colored shirts on Shabbos back in the sixties. We yeshivish young people also wore turtlenecks and dickeys, and Nehru and Beatle jackets. But then again, my ties were psychedelic and about five inches wide, as was my sideburns and the lapels of my plaid suits. Ah, youth.
