Midrash Rabbah


Par 1) The sleep of Bnei Yisroel on the night before Matan Torah "because the sleep of Atzeres (Shavuot) was sweet and the night short" (Shir Hashirim Rabbah, Chapter 1, 12, 2 [1:56])

Par2) The reason that the Baal Shem Tov cherished the second day of Shavuot; Also according to R' Yose who holds that Matan Torah occurred on the seventh day of Sivan; Its aspect - rising from lower to higher; It was established on certainty so as not to conflict with other Holidays. The histalkus of the Baal Shem Tov on the first day of Shavuot and his burial on the second day.
