  • 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 – Avi Kupchik Feb 18 '15 at 0:41

    Your comment appears to have answered your own question: "for parnassah and other segulos". – Shimon bM Feb 18 '15 at 2:08
  • 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? – JJLL Feb 18 '15 at 3:15
