He pointed out all the weird Minhagim the Yidden have.

 One of them is, that on Shavuos they throw

Teshuva re the face masks which were worn on 

Shavuos for Simcha. SEE BELOW

7) Today's  Minhag of bringing a child for the first 

time to Cheder originates back to the times of the 

Rishonim. The רוקח writes in detail how it was done 

on Shavuos.

They wrapped a coat over the child's head and 

brought him early in the morning to Shul.  The 

child was placed on the lap of the Rav who taught 

him the Aleph-Bais & some Pesukim. The child 

licked off the honey from the א ב board. They also 

fed him a specially inscribed Honey Cake and an 

inscribed egg.

The רוקח ends, "One should not change this Minhag."
