Tabernacles - Feast of the Seventh Month

Portrait de Jeune Fille en Costume d'Arles' by Antoine Raspal, 1779

The feast of the seventh month, or Tabernacles, or Succoth, will end this week. Huguenots, French Protestants, kept this feast of eight days always beginning on the first Friday of September, which means seventh. This is a time of feasting and looking forward to ultimate peace with family and friends . . .
