Good idea! Normally, because the weather is cool I like to serve soup but it's still pretty hot here. Please share any recipes you have for Sukkot.

So how do all of you decorate your Succahs, if at all? We generally put some nice posters (that we got from Oorah - great photos of Jews davening at the Kosel with their arba minim, etc) we had laminated a few years back. And my wife really likes those little lights people use on their homes in December.

Funny story - I went to the local crafts store to buy some more of those little lights yesterday. I needed to ask an associate in the store where to find them. I suddenly became crazy self conscious, as a yarmulke-wearing Yid asking for X-mas lights can be mis-understood quite easily. So I asked the associate for "you know, those little white lights people put on tress and gutters in December..." He must have thought I was from another planet.

Sukkah stars for me, and some posters that I inherited from my parents and parents-in-law. Of course, the flour, oil, honey, wine, grapes and apples that always end up fermenting and dripping all over my two-seater. I also hang some esrogim, for good measure.

We also use the white lights...sooo pretty. We did plastic grapes one year. The birds were relentless with them and I felt so bad for teasing the birds. lol! I like to use pumpkins and follow a fall theme. I once saw in a magazine a family that had a large garden and would have guests over to decorate the sukkah using whatever they could find from the garden. The end result was really beautiful. That has always been my dream. This year I didn't spend enough time in the garden and there isn't really much to harvest.

I found some really great ideas on Pinterest. This lady's blog in particular had some great ideas! I'm not very crafty so I'm thankful for people like this who share their ideas. Recycled Toilet Paper Roll Wreath! - creative jewish mom

Another idea I really liked:

Still here on the other side of the Atlantic. I was supposed to fly back to the US, but my relatives talked me into going on a HS trip (required of all Israeli students) to Poland to see the camps. So we're going to check out, aside from the camps, historical related towns during the first few days of Sukkot that my paternal side came from. BTW Weather.com is showing 44F for the southern mid-atlantic right now. Left Israel it was in the lower 80s and arrived yesterday in Poland in the lower 60s. Just can't wait to see what I'm flying back into, the US, after the weekend.
