Sukkot, the Feast of Booths, makes sense as the birth-date: It is the most joyful of the Feasts, and has the theme of celebrating God dwelling with His people. Tradition tells us that the construction of the Tabernacle began on Sukkot, and 2Chr 5:3 tells us that the inauguration of the First Temple, when the Divine Presence came to dwell in it, took place on Sukkot.

Feast of Booths also called the Feast of Tabernacles.

There is a hint(Remez) in John 1:14

John 1:14 And the Word became flesh,
and dwelt among us,
and we saw His glory,
glory as of the only begotten
from the Father,
full of grace and truth.

In the Greek dwelt is

Strong's G4637 - skēnoō
1) to fix one's tabernacle,
have one's tabernacle,
abide (or live) in a tabernacle (or tent), tabernacle
2) to dwell

Yep. As a matter of fact, the Hebrew sukkah (S-K-H) is from the same root or was the source of the Greek skenoo (S-K-H-N-O).

Shalom.
