There are various explanations for why people create bonfires on Lag Ba'omer. One explanation, according to tradition, when Rabbi Shimon bar Yochai (Rashbi) was giving his final lesson to his students, instead of darkness falling as it became night, the sun miraculously continued to shine, enabling him to complete the lesson in daylight. The bonfires represent the light that Rashbi brought to the world through his writings and teaching.
