Only my Jewish friends will be able to recognize the shape of this case right away.
Tonight begins the Jewish holiday of Sukkot, and of all the strange-looking traditions we have, Sukkot brings one of the strangest. We hold together a palm frond and willow and myrtle branches with a citron and shake it all around. So here's the thing: getting three kids into synagogue is complicated enough with their requisite books and snacks and diapers. Try carrying a palm frond, too.
We used to have a generic lulav holder. It was clear plastic with a wooden dowel built in for sturdiness. My youngest sat on the dowel last year and cracked it in half. For this year, I knew we could do better.
There's a Tula Pink sew-along going on right now that I'm linking to, where this is sure to be the strangest submission, don't you think?
Chag sameach, all my Sukkot-observing friends.
