One hundred years ago, there lived in Lemberg a shochet named Rav Avrohom Yitzchok Sperling zt”l.
As a young man, he was
alwaysinterested in minhagim and the reasons behind them. He collected hundreds of minhagim and
He published the Sefer Taamei Haminhagim.
This sefer was an instant success and was a bestseller. It was reprinted at least six times in his lifetime
(unheard of in those days).
The original sefer had only three entries for Lag Ba’omer:
1) Tachanun is not said.
2) Children play with bows and arrow.
3) Increasing with lit candles.
In later editions, another 4-5 entries were added.
The reason for so few entries,is because in those days, Lag Ba’omer in chutz la’aretz was a very minor occasion, even for Chassidim. (See Teshuvas Minchas Elozor 4:60 "כזרות יחשב וכיוהרא “ )
