UMAMI MART MATSURI FESTIVAL
Sukkot

The Jewish Harvest holiday of Sukkot starts this Wednesday, Oct 12th and continues for a week. During this time, people eat their meals outdoors under a sukkah (or little hut), decorated with corn, gourds, pumkins and other harvest-inspired decor. It's traditional to say a blessing during this holiday while holding the lulav (palm leaves) and etrog (a type of citrus, pictured at right).
