The Feast of Tabernacles [or "booths"] And Tuesday Question

Pastor Rick reminded me on Sunday that this year's thanksgiving coincides with the feast of Tabernacles.

Though I am glad that I'm not sleeping in the same house as everyone else, now that they despise me... (Long story short: "But she's such a nice girl! You two should get married someday! Lots of people get married when they're still finishing university!")

Although I'm already thankful...
And I should get back into shape anyway...
And I need to study for that midterm...

So as long as we don't get two or three people voting for the wilderness shelter in the next couple of days, I'm safe.

I would have chosen the last option, but the first one looks like too much fun :)

And BTW, we do not despise you, far from it, just having a hard time understanding.
