Halocho #166 - Honoring Yom Tov

There's a Mitzva to honor each Yom Tov - Jewish Festival.

This Mitzva if fulfilled by:

- Getting a haircut before Yom Tov

- Having a warm shower/bath on Erev Yom Tov

- Baking fresh bread for Yom Tov

- Not eating on Erev Yom Tov afternoon so as not to spoil ones appetite for the evening meal. The details depend on each person's metabolism, but after mid-afternoon nobody may eat a meal (with bread). Even the first day of Yom Tov is considered "Erev Yom Tov" of the second day, in this regard.

- Ones Yom Tov clothes should be more expensive than ones Shabbat clothes.
