"It's a sign of good tidings," said President Shimon Peres after being hit by a flower arrangement in his sukkah on Wednesday. The flowers had been attached to the sukkah branches. Every year President Peres opens up the sukkah in the official residence of the Israeli President for all guests. Thousands attended. Reports say that security guards rushed to help the Peres but he merely combed his hair back into place and stated he was not injured.
