Okay, so we have a 3 day yom tov - shabbat this year.
(Some of you have to put up with 3 of these.)
How are y'all handling the meals?

This year, so far we are only having guests for 2 of the 6 meals. Those will be meat. But we will probably stick one or 2 milk meals in there somewhere.

Anyone got it all together yet?

I don't even know where I'll be for RH. I think I should start figuring it out one of these days.

Meat 18/18

 

Perhaps, perhaps, 2-3 chicken or turkey among those.

Probably milchigs for lunches (except maybe Shabbos). Very light meals on Sukkos Phase II.

Though if I go to Uman, I guess it is all sorted out...

Why? don't you have to arrange for a place to stay etc?

That is easy. Getting there is the hard (or expensive) part...

Don't they (whoever) charter a bunch of flights?
What's a ticket to Uman cost?
Where can you fly into?

You have no right to complain. Us here are going to do it 3 times. At some point your mind just forgets what normality is and you're like "OK, this is life now. Eat, sleep, poop, shul." Afterwards you feel mildly unsettled because you're at work on a Friday instead of in shul surrounded by people who smell like hobos.

Yeah, you are correct. Even when I moved to the US for a number of years, I always planned on coming back to Israel, and still travelled there a few times/year, so I still only kept one day of yom tov. When I got married, the wife adoped my customs, which drove her family nuts. (let me tell you, it wasn't difficult to convince her)

So you are correct. I have no reason to complain. But I do it anyway. I'm Jewish.

Eat, sleep, poop, shul."

It could be worse. A friend of mine, because of severe back pain, is taking oxycontin. Side effect: constipation.
He can't even poop. (I recommended an better drug as an alternative).

I'm a Lubavitcher in this one aspect. If I would be in Israel for YT (which has never happened) I would keep one day of YT regardless of where I live or any other of the shenanigans. Unfortunately, if I were to live in Israel I would still keep 2 days of YT in Ch"l.

I think that's how most folks do it. At least most folks that I know. I just couldn't stand the idea of going back to 2 days after so many years of 1 day.....

Rabbi Soloveitchik apparently agreed that you do it based on where you're physically located. RHS seems to have created the day-and-a-half nonsense where you avoid d'oraysas on the 2d day in Israel. None of that for me.
I think most frummakes keep one or two days based on where they actually live (with all the games and loopholes) rather than where they physically are.

Think of all the free time he has over YT -he has 25% fewer activities scheduled!

I like to keep all 18 meals in mind as I plan.  For example, if I make a large roast for Rosh hashana and serve it for 2 meals, I can freeze the rest in 2 containers; for the first and last days of Succos too.  I don't want to make everything for every meal for every yomtov.

That's my problem right there. It's too much for my brain to contain all at once. Thank gd I have 10 years of yom tov menus stored on my pc.

I usually ended up going to my parents when sukkos ended up like it is this year because I was able to go for 2 weeks as opposed to if sukkos falls out in the middle of the week.  While I was there, I technically kept one day, but since you can't do anything, it wasn't really any different.  I just didn't have to hear kiddush before eating, but that's about it.  

 

This year, however, because ticket prices are insane, I'm staying here, so I get the break in the middle.  Lucky me :-)

 

The whole rosh hashana thing is so annoying when it falls out like this...it's literally half a week long and just feels like it's never going to end.
