What is the significance of Sukkot in terms of its date and historic events?

Unlike other Jewish holidays, Sukkot does not seem to commemorate a specific historic event. Its date is not associated with a particular event, but rather it is a time to celebrate the gathering of the harvest and to commemorate the protection provided by G-d when the children of Israel left Egypt.

What are the different parts of the festival of Sukkot and done on each of them?

Sukkot has several parts: the first two days are yom tov (holidays) with special observances including dwelling in a sukkah, taking the Four Kinds, and festive meals. The intermediate days are known as Chol Hamoed, quasi holidays during which we continue to dwell in the sukkah and take the Four Kinds. The final two days are a separate holiday called Shemini Atzeret/Simchat Torah, with its own customs and observances.
