The Festival of Putz

Tonight begins the holiday of Sukkot, and once again, I am an epic fail.

Every fall, I really think, “THIS is the year we are going to build a sukkah!”

But then I remember how much bickering ensued when El Yenta Man and I were building the chicken coop and I think maybe hanging out at the communal synagogue sukkah together with a glass of wine is sooo much more pleasant.

Clearly, I have no more excuses since apparently it’s so easy, even a dog can do it:

Thankfully, it’s a mitzvah to invite others into their sukkahs, so we can leave the backyard to the chickens and come to your place.

  1. Oh – it seems like a sortof complex undertaking. Some friends of ours built one out of corn stalks one year, being a rather abundant material this time of year, only to later learn that as a building material it was not exactly, well, kosher… You built a blogpost instead, and I am happy about that.

  2. Sukkah project, seriously. SO easy, and affordable. The trickiest part is the sides – I made mine out of fabric, but they sell their own pre-assembled ones, too, or you can put up plywood ones and paint them however you want.
