What I love most about being Jewish: VI – by Michael T. Pullen

Succoth.

This is got to be one of the best holidays ever. First, it is in the fall. What is better than fall in New England. Second, you build and decorate a Succah. What is more fabulous then the physical act of doing a ritual? It is like a long meditation on the fragility of life with the smells and sights of the changing leaves. Third, everyone participates fully. Children, adults and all in between. Everyone can decorate, everyone can dwell, and everyone loves a good drink in the Succah.
