Chag Shavuot Sameach! Happy Shavuot!

Shavuot begins tonight. It is the 3rd pilgrimage festival, along with Sukkot and Passover. Sukkot has booths, Passover has its sedar, Shavuot has... dairy food? It seems to be the forgotten holiday among the less observant movements. I'm thinking about blintzes and cheesecake. Our synagogue honors the confirmation class tonight. Do you have any plans or traditions?

Here's some info:
