|Porch decorations for Sukkot/Thanksgiving|
And, so the next holiday we will celebrate is Thanksgiving. (Trust me, we will NOT observe Halloween!) Did y'all know that originally when the Pigrims celebrated "Thanksgiving", they were actually observing Sukkot? They observed this holiday earlier in the year than what Americans now celebrate Thanksgiving, and it was to thank God for the harvest. They originally celebrated this day of thanks between Sept 21 and Nov 9, but usually in early October... THAT is Sukkot. See this site for further reading on this subject. The people who came to this land were obeying Torah in their harvest celebration.
It was many, many years later that President Lincoln declared Thanksgiving a national holiday - to be observed on the last Thursday of November. See this site to read more about this.
