Happy Sukkot! (Feast of Tabernacles)

 Wednesday night was Erev Sukkot (the beginning of the Feast of Tabernacles). We had a bunch of friends over at our house for dinner. Unfortunately we don't have a space to build a real Sukkah (tabernacle/booth) but you can't really have this holiday without one. So I put a bunch of craft supplies out on the table and had each family make their own mini Sukkah. It was a lot of fun. You only need some craft paper, stapler, tape, olive branches, throw in some crayons and crepe paper for decoration and there you go. It was quiet busy that night and everybody took their Sukkah home, so I don't have any proper pictures. But here is what I snapped during the happy booth making! Hope you don't mind the craft mess around...
