I take chaggim off work, which is never an issue, and the people I work with are always ask what the festival is about when I tell them I won’t be in.
Pesach and Shavuot are easy, everyone’s seen The Ten Commandments and The Prince of Egypt, Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur are exactly what the name says, but Sukkot is….. what?
We lived in huts in the desert so we live in a hut for a week? The Clouds of Glory that surrounded the camp? It’s like Sukkot is more about a concept than an event and I haven’t found a good way to explain it so they understand instead of just smile and nod
