An experience unique to Sukkot--

--riding the subway with a lulav. It was an interesting challenge to davven/pray the basics (Baruch Sheh-Amar, Ashrei, and Yishtabach) of the P'sukei D'Zimrah section while carefully positioning the lulav so that it wouldn't poke either seat-mate in the eye. And I was relieved to see that there was enough room in the subway car on the way home from minyan, at the height of the morning rush hour and headed toward Manhattan, for both me and my three-foot-long leafy green companion.

But enough of this subway silliness--we have far more important things to celebrate.
