I've always seen it spelled, "Sukkot."  It's the Feast of Booths, mentioned
in the Bible/Torah.  Yeah, it's definitely period.  To commemorate the
wandering of the Children of Israel, people go out and make and decorate
booths (temporary dwellings/tabernacles) and have a big picnic and some
music and a religious observance.

In all, kind of like an SCA Event.  Only, "churchy."  Oh, excuse me,
