We had about twenty people around here yesterday, which, as you understand, is quite a lot for us when it's usually just the three of us here. I was a bit apprehensive at first about how so many people would fit into a little place like ours, but that's the good thing about Sukkot - when people come, they sit outside in the sukkah and you don't have to worry about your living room being not tidy or not roomy enough.
I spent most of the two days before cleaning and cooking. At the end of yesterday, I was tired but happy as everyone told me what a great time they had before leaving. You really don't need to do anything too fancy - good simple food and generous hospitality go a lot way.

Sukkot is nearly over, and it was a great holiday. Looking forward to Hanukkah!
