What are some Sukkot customs and practices?

It is traditional to build a Sukkah, a temporary hut to dwell in during the holiday.

It is the custom to buy a lulav and etrog and shake them daily throughout the festival.

In the times of the Temple, Sukkot was also the time of a water drawing ceremony, a wonderfully joyous and upbeat celebration.
