Welcome to craft schooling Sunday! Tonight we are ushering in the Jewish holiday of Succot, one of my very favorite holidays that involves sleeping and eating in our temporary dwelling, which is called a succah. Succahs are built in all kinds of places and many folks, especially those outside of Israel, have a portion of their home with a retractable roof such that that space can be made into a succah. We are fortunate to have two porches, one is our entry courtyard, which becomes our eating succah, and our second and larger porch becomes home to a succah that is used for sleeping only.
It is hard to put into words how special the succah feels once the holiday starts, but honestly we have no problem "dwelling" in our succah for a whole 7 days and nights (8 outside of Israel) and I am generally sad to say goodbye to the holiday! Speaking of which, there is still so much to do, so gotta get to it, phew.
Last week's party was full of amazing ideas to welcome fall and to included creativity into your life, and here are just some of the ideas that inspired me,enjoy:
