Just five days after Yom Kippur is the joyful harvest festival known as Sukkot. Sukkot is a time to celebrate with family and reflect on the important things in your life. By building a sukkah, you literally separate yourself from materialism, and focus on the love of your family and friends.
But really, let’s not get too serious here. We’re not gonna lie–this is one of our favorite holidays, because it’s fun. And it’s fun for your kids. How could it not be? They get to hang outdoors in a sukkah, eat a lot, and shake a weird-looking fruit. I mean, that’s a great time for anyone.
As always, we’ve got you covered–we gathered some of our favorite recipes, activities, and inspirational posts to get you in the right frame of mind:
