SUKKOT OR FEAST OF BOOTHS
On the fifteenth day of the seventh month, when you have gathered in the produce of the land, you shall celebrate the feast of the Lord seven days. On the first day shall be a solemn rest, and on the eighth day shall be a solemn rest. And you shall take on the first day the fruit of splendid trees, branches of palm trees and boughs of leafy trees and willows of the brook, and you shall rejoice before the Lord your God seven days. You shall celebrate it as a feast to the Lord for seven days in the year. It is a statute forever throughout your generations; you shall celebrate it in the seventh month. You shall dwell in booths for seven days. All native Israelite’s shall dwell in booths, that your generations may know that I made the people of Israel dwell in booths when I brought them out of the land of Egypt: I am the Lord your God. – Leviticus 23:39-43
It is hard to imagine the lifestyle they lived then with all the scorpions and snakes in the desert . Pitching a tent in your yard is a good idea but here I have fire ants all over the place and love to eat me for dinner. Getting away from home is hard when you have 6 Pomeranian’s and a bunch of chickens. Most people do not have money to even go let alone a vacation. So I still don’t know what I am going to do for the next week besides sleep in my recliner or a hammock.
