About the Name: There was once a king who made a seven-day banquet for all his subjects, but asked his closest friends to stay a little longer and make an eighth day. Our Sages apply this image to explain the difference between the seven days of Sukkot and the concluding festival, called Shemini Atzeret, the "eighth day."
Jewish mysticism says that the number seven alludes to nature and the number eight alludes to above nature. Nowadays it's still us and them, but on the 8th day it'll be just you and me, and when the sun won't set, you'll know it's my eighth day, and when your songs won't end, you'll know it's my eighth day.
