Sukkot

Our neighbors are orthodox Jews so Dina and I get to learn about a ton of holidays we never knew about. It's pretty fun ... today I'm sitting there eating dinner and I hear construction work. Look out the window and our neighbors are building some weird structure on their deck (which pretty much touches our deck, being San Francisco) ....

"Dina, Google!"

A bit later, after finding a page to map between the Jewish calendar and the 2006 "Civil" calendar, we find:

So they're building a sukkah. I wonder if they'll be sleeping in it.

Interesting.
