Sukkot is the Jewish Autumn festival. To celebrate our new year’s resolutions being kept in our home and in our life, we build a temporary garden shelter and eat our meals outside in it for seven days and nights known as a sukkah. The building and decorating of the sukkah is a fun family event. Spending time in the sukkah is meant to be a joyous time where we sing, dance and focus on the happiness our life enjoys because we are good people.
During Sukkot we also gather four items to represent the four personalities we encouter in life, a lemon, a palm frond, a myrtle branch and a willow branch and we wave them in all directions around us to represent the personalities we encounter and to remind ourselves to be good to everyone.
