Lulavs are traditionally associated with the week-long holiday of Sukkot, which is celebrated quickly after Yom Kippur. Worshippers display the lulav (palm frond) and three other plants: hadas (three myrtle boughs with leaves), etrog (a citron fruit) and an arava (two willow branches with leaves). These ingredients comprise the “four species” (arba minim) that are displayed in daily prayers for the duration of the holiday.

Many folks who celebrate Sukkot in the traditional manner start up their preparations ahead of Yom Kippur, which precedes the holiday by a few days, and search for the handiest four species they can catch in retailers and markets. 

Traditionally, the sukkah itself, where all meals are eaten for the duration of the holiday, is constructed the day after Yom Kippur.
