Here's a little glimpse of what our Succah looked like this year.....something like Moroccan Casbah meets the Chinese circus in Mexico. Fun and colorful and put together at the last minute on account of two weeks in Europe prior to the holiday, (about which I'm certainly not complaining!) So while I did spend hours and hours adhering contact paper shapes to the tile walls to create a colorful wallpaper pattern of sorts, none of the other decorations were hand made by me, as in past years, and fortunately the results were equally festive and welcoming. Phew, I guess I can go traveling again next year?
Goodbye colorful succah, it was great dwelling in you for the past week! We love the holiday of Succos so much, but it's time to say good bye. Simchat Torah starts tonight, which means lots of serious festivities and in my case a huge crowd to host (part way through all the dancing on Sunday night) for some refreshments before everyone faints from hunger and thirst......so gotta run, we've been dwelling in the Succah but now it's time to come back home, and boy is there lots of work there waiting for me! Oh, and crafting? Did anyone mention crafting?
Wishing you all a joyful Simchas Torah and Shemini Atzeret!
