Buy some wine or flowers for your Shabbat hosts. Take a shower. Dress up. Empty your pockets. Don't forget to put out your string of floss and to keep on the lights you'll need for the next 25 hours.

Deposit some money into a tzedakah box before lighting the candles.

At least 18 minutes before sunset, candle lighting allows us to symbolically participate in the act of creation: "Let there be light."

It all begins when the sun hits the horizon (and finishes 25 hours later when there are three stars visible in the sky).

These might begin with the afternoon Mincha prayers, then transition to Kabbalat Shabbat prayers to welcome this special time of the week, and end with evening Maariv prayers - about an hour.

Same drill as Friday night:
Kiddush
Washing of the Hands
Motzi
EAT!
Torah Talk
Birkat Hamazon (Blessing After the Meal)

Ah, rest! Go for a walk, play appropriate games, spend time reading, read a story aloud with family or friends, use the time for conversation with spouse, children or friends, or take a Shabbat nap.

Literally, the Third Meal, a special celebration of abundance.

The candle, spice and wine of Havdalah mark the transition from Shabbat back into the six days of creation, the time for work and creativity.
