The holiday of Sukkot lasts for 7 days (and leads right into another holiday!) and the middle days of the holiday are celebrated with fun events as well as continued meals inside the Sukkah! Yesterday we went to two Sukkot events. At the first, the kids got to ride on ponies, jump in a bounce house (Simon says they have a bounce house at school but it is called a bouncy castle!), and eat. At the second, we had pizza and played on the playground. At both, it was possible to build an edible Sukkah with graham crackers and candy.
The weather on the first two days of Sukkot was awful with lots of rain. On the third day it was lovely, and yesterday it was so-so. It’s supposed to rain more over the next few days, so our time eating outside may be limited! However, we are still having a fun holiday!
