Why are we still looking at articles from erev sukos? its almost chanuka already!
Care to clarify?
Chanukah is related to Sukkos. According to the Beis Shamai we diminish the candles by days as the oxen was diminished day by day. The Beis Hille holds that as days went by, our spirutuality increased whereas the Beis Shamai wants to dimihish our materialism as the oxen representing the umas haolam are diminished. Sukkas where we celebrate a good harvest is our holiday instead of Thanksgiving Day.
Way too complicated……too much risk of burning down the sukkah if we were to place the mnorah right by the entrance with the intent of being hddur mitzvah. Also, sehphardim do not hold by eating sufganiyos in the sukkah. Finally, its hard to find weatherproof dreidel decorations at Leiters in the September time frame .
