Berachah for enjoying Shabbos?


We have a mitzvah of "oneg Shabbat", enjoying the day; we fulfill this in many ways, including eating fine foods and having light in our homes. Where is the berachah [blessing] for this mitzvah?

The berachah for this mitzvah is the berachah recited upon lighting Shabbat candles. However, there is no requirement for the family to be present when the candles are lit and the berachah is recited; the person reciting the berachah does so on behalf of the household.

(Rivivot Ephraim 1:222:30)

Have a great day,
