  • no it's not a duplicate because I know a lot of people who put wine in their pockets at havdalah for parnassah and other segulos Feb 18, 2015 at 0:41

    Your comment appears to have answered your own question: "for parnassah and other segulos".

  • Is putting wine in one's pockets common? Could there be other reasons to do so other than for (or in addition to) parnassah and segulot? For example, perhaps to symbolically take the sweetness of Shabbat with them until next Shabbat?
