Needless to say, I wasn't looking forward to another season of 3 day chags.
Minus a date with a minor back injury on some wet stairs, this chag went well. And baruch Hashem for good people and a good community! A move to the big city has really made a tremendous difference in how I feel about Shabbat and holidays!
But I still have some questions. I need your practical tips and advice: how do I avoid being disgusting on yom tov? I read the Laws of Yom Tov, and I tried a few things and failed. I feel like I become smelly and get greasy hair very quickly compared to the average person, and that significantly affects my simchas yom tov.
How do you cope with this issue? There is a wide variation in halachic rulings on these issues, but I am interested in ALL your tips and tricks! Even if a particular item might not be something within my own hashkafah, it might be useful to another reader. (I am particularly interested in bathing and make-up tricks, vain creature that I am.)
