Halocho #1357 - Isru Chag; the day after Yom Tov

The day after Yom Tov is called Isru Chag. 

Isru Chag is today - Thursday - in Israel, and on Friday everywhere else.

One may not fast on Isru Chag and no Tachanun is said on Isru Chag. 

The Minhag is to eat a bigger meal than usual, to mark the day as Isru Chag.

Some do not say Tachanun for the entire week after Shavu'ot since the Korbanot that one had to bring when coming to the Bet Hamikdash on Yom Tov could be brought for the entire week after Shavu'ot.
