Shavuos – שבועות

On Shavous many people have a minhag (tradition) to eat dairy products as a reminder that when Bnei Yisroel accepted the Torah they were first told how to prepare meat products. Since it would take a significant amount of time to prepare meat products from scratch, they sufficed with dairy products.
