A lazy blogger's pre-Lag B'Omer post

Yep, this is just a link to the results of a search for Lag B'Omer on DovBear's blog.  He has too many good posts for me to link individually.  (I just checked that DovBear link, and it turns out that one of those posts was published today.)

The Jewish Daily Forward asks, Do We Have Lag B'Omer All Wrong?  Probably (and DovBear seems to agree).  But those observing Sefirat HaOmer would be well advised to get a haircut this Sunday (which is when Lag B'Omer falls this year), anyway.

Just found a link to another DovBear goody right here on my blog.

When Lag B'Omer falls on a Sunday it is permitted to get a haircut on the preceeding Friday l'kavod Shabbat. The barber shop in town was hopping!

Larry, thanks for the info. I told my husband as we were preparing for Shabbat. His only complaint: "*Now*" you tell me!" Oh, well, we'll remember for future years.
