The Shavuos Post

I looked in the Mishna Brurah for some practices to do on Shavuos. I found one minhag. To eat dairy. I did not see one mention of staying up all night. I believe it is a practice that people follow because the Zohar mentions that the sages did it.

I don't follow the Zohar, nor am I a sage, so I am going to get a good nights rest which will allow me to pray in the morning without passing out during Krias Hatorah/Haftorah.
