    There is an inyan of simcha on Shabbos too.

    The Behag counts a positive mitzvoh of simcha on Shabbos, the Sifri (or is it Sifrei?) refers to Shabbos as a time of simcha, etc.

    However, it is different and lesser than the simcha of Yom tov.

    See extensive discussion on this in Shorshei Minhag Ashkenaz I, By Rav Binyomin Shlomo Hamburger, in the perek on viyismichu vicho Yisroel ohavei shimecho (pages 66-70, IIRC, I just was looking at it recently).

    “On Shabbos, we come to visit….” And yet, we await and celebrate the visit of the Shabbos queen (if one is going to speak of Qabbalistic concepts like “isarusa,” one has to speak of them all ;-))….

And your thoughts...?
