Waiting to Daven On Shavuos Night

2

shavuosOn Shavuos night, the minhag is to wait until it is night – Tzeis Hakochavim – to daven Maariv in order to have 49 complete days. (Shulchan Aruch w/Mishnah Brurah 494:1).

Likewise, it is preferable for women to wait until it is night to light candles and say Shehechiyanu on Shavuos night. (Luach R’ Yechiel Michel Tukatchinsky, Piskei Tshuvos 494:2)
