Can a Brit Milah, on the morning of Purim, cover you for the Seudah or does it need to be distinct?

    Without knowing whether this concept applies here, it's worth mentioning the concept of ain me'arvin simcha b'simcha, we don't usually mix two occasions together. I do not know if this applies to two distinct seudas mitzvos.

Nitei Gavriel (Purim 70:10) says that you can do it the other way. You can make use the Purim Feast for a Pidyon HaBen, Brit, or Bar Mitzvah.

    Is double counting really a unidirectional operation?

  • @WAF: I could bring arguments either way. Perhaps a Purim Seuda has to be explicitly made (since it is an explicit mitzvah, as opposed to the others that are generic responses to a happy occasion), and the other celebrations can be tacked on.
