I never realized how much is involved in Sukkot

I guess growing up Reform, I always thought Sukkot was a minor holiday. We went to school, and maybe went to synagoge for Simchat Torah as kids.

We never had a sukkah except one they would build at the synagogue. So, this info graphic is absolutely frightening about all the stuff involved in Sukkot that I had no idea.

I have never in my 60 years had a sukkah and won't start now as neither my husband nor I could even begin to think of building one. Last time, I tried to use a hammer, I got my finger. My husband is more brains than wood worker. And the ones they sell online are way out of our price range: $500-1000! Who has at kind of money! At least, we have a patio with two walls, no roof, and faces out towards the east. (No furniture either, so no sitting there. We will do what we did last year, and go outside once a day and shake the lulav & Etrog we purchased and arrived before Yom Kippur. We ordered the standard one from a place in NYC so I hope it's okay. Doesn't really matter to us if it is perfect. The hard part will be putting the lulav together as last year it came all set up. Never did it before, either of us. Found the instructions that came with it and the Aish info graphic on putting it together and how to shake it and say the prayers.

Hopefully, we will find a sukkah at the synagogue that we can at lest sit in and have a sandwich.

And, after sitting & standing in shul for Rosh Hashanah & Yom Kippur, we don't plan on going over Sukkot. I always thought once they were done, that was it. This inforgraphic seems too involved and extensive.
And, I'm done cooking until Pesach. Give us simple. Sandwiches will fit quite well with tuna salad stuffed in a roll or pita! And, we don't have any living visitors except squirrels & chipmunks, so no need to feed anyone but the two of us:)

Yizkor on Simchat Torah??

Your infographic says that Yizkor and the prayer for rain are on "Simchat Torah.. that's only true in Istael, isn't it? In the galut, they're on Shemini Atzeret.
