 Kiddush - sitting or standing by Rabbi Roselaar
After the wine has been poured, the kiddush cup should be lifted up with both hands and then held in the right hand whilst the brachot are recited.
However, most normative halachic authorities recommend that one should sit whilst reciting kiddush and this appears to have been the practice of the Rishonim (some of whom mention specifically that in Shul it is proper for the Chazan to stand when saying kiddush, thus implying that this is not the case at home).
According to the Kolbo (a 13th century halachic compendium) this is because kiddush should form a prelude to the meal which is eaten sitting, whilst according to Tosafot and the Vilna Gaon it is so that those who are listening should be more formally defined as a halachic group, rather than standing and lolling around.
