HaYom Yom, 18 Iyar, Lag BaOmer

From Chabad.org:
Lag Ba'Omer was one of the Mitteler Rebbe's particularly noteworthy festivals. He and the Chassidim would go out to the fields that day, and although he did not wash and break bread, he did partake of mashkeh (strong drink), which he was not allowed to do for health reasons. Many wonders were seen at that time, most of them involving the blessing of children for childless couples - and all year long people waited for Lag Ba'Omer.
The inclusion of this in HaYom Yom is evidently meant to suggest that we should feel the same way.
