‘Talent Night’ is another tradition carried on from last year. Last year it wasn’t even planned! We had actually planned to go canoeing but, when the rain prevented us from having fun in the river, the moms came up with something new. They knew that they would need an indoor activity that was fun for all ages and that everyone could participate in. Thus, the variety show was born- but all of us kids call it ‘talent night’. Talent night is a hilarious event where you can share a dance, song, skit, joke or talent in front of all your friends. Some of the acts are funny, some are serious- most are funny!
Of course, don’t forget the Lulav dance. We learned the ‘lulav dance’ from a different Sukkot that we visited. It’s a simple dance that everyone can do. It ties together the two commandments; to rejoice before the Lord and to gather the four different species.
What else went on during Sukkot 2014? I guess you'll have to come and join us next year!
“Be very careful, then, how you live—not as unwise but as wise, making the most of every opportunity, because the days are evil. Therefore do not be foolish, but understand what the Lord’s will is. Do not get drunk on wine, which leads to debauchery. Instead, be filled with the Spirit, speaking to one another with psalms, hymns, and songs from the Spirit. Sing and make music from your heart to the Lord, always giving thanks to God the Father for everything, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.” Ephesians 5:15-20
"And the Word became flesh, and did tabernacle among us, and we beheld his glory, glory as of an only begotten of a father, full of grace and truth." John 1:14
