This sugya focuses on the least-discussed mitzvah of Purim - Mishteh V'Simcha. We discuss if the obligation of Simcha requires one to wash for bread at a seudah, similar to the chiyuv on Shabbos and Yom Tov. We also discuss the unique obligation to drink wine on Purim - is this part of the Purim Seudah, or is this a special independent obligation? We discuss why there is mitzvah to get drunk and different opinions as to how one can fulfill this chiyuv.
Halachic ramifications include: eating Purim seudah on the first night, forgetting Al Hanisssim during Birchas Hamazon, getting married on Purim, the shiur of drinking, and more.
