lag b'omer

kindle your bonfires!

Lag B'Omer falls on the 33rd day of counting the Omer during and following Passover / Pesach. It commemorates the lives of Rabbi Shimon and Rabbi Akiva and their accomplishments. But how is it celebrated, you ask?

Bonfires! Singing! Dancing! Weddings!

All kinds of great things!

It is customary for Jewish people to kindle bonfires on Lag B'Omer. And since the mourning period that is typically going on during the counting is lifted, weddings are held and haircuts are given. There is much singing, dancing, and food - in fact, carob and eggs are notably featured. Want some more fun recipes? Visit here (Kosher.com)!
