comment Can too many decorations render a sukkah invalid?
What if it's like a fancy hanging beaded chain that is hung vertically from the schach? (Okay probably less than a foot long, but what if ...)? Does the same apply if I'm hanging lights from my schach?

No. "shakula" means "losing a child"; it could refer to death or burial. In this case, they were both buried on the same day.

Mekubal, do Sefardim refer to the brachot as "eitz, adamah, hakol"? That's cool! We Ashkenos call them "haeitz, haadamah, shehakol." As usual, you're using gramatically correct nouns; we're just lifting words out of context.
