Sukkot is a Jewish holiday.  Structures like the one pictured above are built in remembrance of the temporary dwellings built by Israelites during their 40 years in the desert.  Meals are eaten in the sukkot and guests are welcomed, some people sleep in the sukkot.  Examples can be seen at Sukkah City in New York City’s Union Square and if you know what you are looking for, similar edifices can be seen in many Jewish neighborhoods right now.
