Besamim on Motzai Shabbat of a Personal Festive Day


By Halacha, besamim isn’t used for havdalah when Motzai Shabbat is Yom tov. However, if there is a wedding, bar mitzvah, Brit milah, etc. being held the day after Shabbat, does similar reasoning apply To the individual and/or their immediate family and is besamim not used by them?



  1. No, there is no such custom that I am aware of. For a private festive occasion that lands out on Sunday the family should make a regular Havdalah using besamim.
