  1. Rama 429:2 based on Shibolei HaLeket siman 262 and Sukkot 45b. See Maharil who explains that the reason for this is that the Korban Shlalmim of the holiday is eaten for 2 days and so it can be eaten even on the day after the holiday. See Shulchan Aruch HaRav who says that it is a minhag. See Birkei Yosef 494:4 who says that the Rambam, Rosh, and Rif don't consider it a significant day at all.
